Dear Concerned Citizens,

Thank you for participating previously in the process to update King County's Comprehensive Land Use Plan and the Critical Areas, Stormwater, and Clearing and Grading Ordinances. We would like to encourage your continued participation in advance of next week's key meeting:

Tuesday, July 27, 1:30 p.m. - The Growth Management and Unincorporated Areas Committee  will meet in the King County Courthouse 10th Floor Council Chambers to consider the Critical Areas Ordinance (including the 65-10 proposal), the Stormwater Ordinance and the Clearing and Grading Ordinance. Public testimony will be taken at that time. No decision will be made at this meeting. The Committee will meet again to vote on these ordinances in late August. Please watch for further updates.

If you oppose the approval of these ordinances in their current form, you are encourage to attend this meeting or submit your comments via e-mail in support of amendments to make these proposals more balanced between environmental protection and property rights. You also can watch the proceedings live on Civic Television (CTV), Channel 22.

Additional opportunities for public comment will be available when these proposals and the Comprehensive Land Use Plan amendments go before the full Metropolitan King County Council this fall. If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact our office at any time.

David Irons
