Need for sports fields increases
With the elimination of ag lands as sportsfield sites, the need for sportsfields increases.
Since the subject 10-acre site is high and dry and located among areas that would have been served by the Sammamish Valley proposed sports fields, the county should stipulate transfer conditions that include the use of the 10 acres for active uses. (Just as the county attaches conditions to city annexations of unincorporated areas.)
By the way, if this 10 acres is the site I'm quite sure it is, and I would like to be notified if I'm wrong, it's misleading to call it "South Norway Hill." Isn't it the 10 acres that are west of 124th NE and north of NE 144th St. practically next door to the Kingsgate shopping are?
