A NATURAL COMMUNITY PARK WOULD BE PREFERABLE
The mitigation money from Brightwater was supposed to be used to improve any negative impact from the sewage plant to the surrounding neighborhoods.
The neighborhoods would like a natural community park in the residential area and one in which all community members could use.
A neighborhood is not the right location for a sports complex and the distruction of the natural land as it is now.
This sports complex would destroy Wellington Golf Course and forest which has been in the area for approximately 90 years.
We do think sports fields and organized groups do need a place but a location such as a business park or industrial area is a much better fit.
When businesses are closed in the evenings and weekends is the time a sport complex is used. This location of a sports facility in a business area makes more sense and would not have a negative impact.
This complex will affect anyone from 195th Street NE to north of 240th Sreet SE and east of SR522 and SR 9 to the east of 75 AVE SE/156 Avenue NE.
I think our groups working together can have a beneficial impact on the community.
The hundred-plus acres and 100s of acres surrounding this Snohomish County purchase is in jeopardy of being destroyed.

During the program, the more than 500 hot rod and car aficionados in attendance generously and spontaneously donated nearly $10,000 in support of the Children’s Country Home mission of caring for medically fragile and technology-dependent children.
The board and staff of Children’s Country Home were humbled, touched and amazed by this outpouring of support.
What an honor to be selected as the beneficiary of this wonderful gift and we thank every participant of the Washington State Hot Rod Hall of Fame event for their generosity.
Diane Kolb, Children’s Country Home Executive Director
