I have been attending the King County public hearings for
the Treemont development. Testimony by local homeowners has made a
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

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.
