Opinion

Resident concerned about Treemont

I have been attending the King County public hearings for

the Treemont development. Testimony by local homeowners has made a

huge difference.

The developers are trying to put in 194 homes across the highway

from Aldara Golf Course. Yes, it's zoned one house per five acres, but the

developers had their application turned in before 1989, when they could

have one house per acre. There is a one house per five acre alternative.

They will be dumping the development's stormwater into

the Snoqualmie River and Patterson Creek. They will have septic

systems. They plan on building another entrance road off Highway 202 and

putting a light in at Duthie Hill intersection.

Concerned citizens have called a public meeting for Nov. 30 at 7

p.m. at the Fall City Fire Hall. Please attend this meeting.

If you are unable, letters can be mailed to arrive by Dec. 2 to:

Office of the Hearing Examiner, Attn: Stafford Smith/Treemont, 850

Union Bank of California Building, 900 4th Ave., Seattle, WA, 98164; call

(206) 296-4660; fax (206) 296-1654; or e-mail

stafford.smith@metrokc.gov.
