Falls Crossing is still looming over Snoqualmie like a big, black,
ugly cloud. I feel this proposed project will not benefit the average citizen such
as myself and others.
In fact, Puget Western’s proposed Falls Crossing is so incompatible
with the land and local state and federal regulations, that hundreds of
conditions have been drafted to make it seem more palatable.
One of the planning commissioners in the previous vote declined to
do so. She felt that to vote before the studies were completed did not
The studies for threatened and endangered species, a market study to
determine if proposed village retail is economically feasible and
hydrology permits from the state have not been obtained. Also,the land deeded to
the city from Puget Western is a toxic dump site and has not been given
final clearance, and studies for the Kimball Creek water quality have
not been done.
Traffic is backed up to Preston in the morning, and the old always
has to pay for the new. We will pay, pay, pay.
The following City Council members will vote in the future on
Falls Crossing: Marsha Korich, Frank Lonergan, Dick Kirby and
Cathy Reed. Drop a letter off at the city hall; it will be date stamped and a
copy given to you.
