Last week's paper announced that WRECO had just filed a formal
request with King County for the expansion of Snoqualmie's Urban
Growth Area (UGA), so WRECO could begin building the next 1,700 houses
in Snoqualmie Ridge.
WRECO can't build the next 1,700 houses unless the King County
Council approves the expansion of the UGA. The majority of the
King County councilpersons are pro-developer and will vote to expand the UGA.
If Dave Irons, Jr., is elected in the November elections, he will cast
another pro-developer vote.
If you want to save Snoqualmie, and the rest of the Valley, and to
prevent the building of these 1,700 houses, you have a chance to do
so. Cast your vote for Di Irons by writing in her name on the November ballot.
Di is definitely not a friend of the developers. She will cast a vote
for slow growth and may be able to block the expansion of Snoqualmie's UGA.
Her name is not printed on the ballot; you have to actually write her
If this is important to you, talk to your friends and neighbors about it.
