The Supreme Court accepted our petition for review of the Court of Appeals decision that went against us. The case is schedule for oral arguments in late October.
After the Growth Management Hearings Board invalidated the Urban Center zoning for Point Wells, Snohomish County reacted by passing a new ordinance designating Point Wells as an Urban Village. SRB is moving forward with a challenge to the new Urban Village zoning ordinance.
SRB supported an effort by Woodway to use a new law passed to the legislature to annex the Point Wells property without an agreement by the developer. This effort was not successful because Shoreline and BSRE (the Point Wells developer) helped convince the legislature to pass a second bill taking away Woodway’s ability to annex.
SRB met with Representative Ruth Kagi to express the local community’s frustration over Point Wells and the annexation bill.
