Important St. Ed Ballfield Meeting, Kenmore City Hall, June 12 – 7pm

https://kenmore.civicweb.net/document/80734

Come and voice your opinion about the open space field at St. Edward State Park in Kenmore!

Kenmore wants to place an artificially lighted artificial turf Little League field in place of the grassy open space where deer, frogs, bats, birds and nature reside, where people walk and picnic in relative peace and quiet, where the skies are dark at night, camps conduct environmental education and pro-grass sports teams like cricket can still find what they prefer.

SAVE Public St Edward WA State Park from Private Developers

[Update 2016-12-24]
The $5K goal was achieved, thanks to everyone involved! Please see Bricklin & Newman LLP to City of Kenmore for that work product. Legal’s next recommended steps to appeal the Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) range from $3k to $10k depending on their involvement and both sides’ tenacity; leading up to JAN 5, 2016, signing of 62-year lease agreement between Daniels developer and WA State Parks.

The Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) process has started. We need legal advocacy to help save St. Edward State Park from developers. Our goal is to raise $5K by OCT 1, 2016. Thanks for all your contributions! We want to keep Saint Edward WA State Park PUBLIC, as a 316-acre park in Kenmore and Kirkland, Washington.
