FEIS Appeal Update
The appeal hearing was completed in early April, where we presented our evidence against the thoroughness of the Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS).
Unfortunately though, the Hearing Examiner did not agree with our position and denied our appeal.
Although this was a disappointing decision, there are still many activities we will pursue as we continue to fight this development:
EPA Petition: We are escalating the Department of Ecology's Site Hazard Assessment to the EPA for additional oversight
King County Officials: We will continue engaging with key officials as the developer applies for permits
Snoqualmie City Council Meetings: We will continue to attend the City Council meetings to track their debate of the PCI Plan and Development Agreement
Fighting a major project like the proposed Snoqualmie Mill development often takes $40,000 or more. Our fundraising so far has brought in $7,040. To add to that amount, we are holding an online auction. Bidding will be open August 1st through August 9th, but you can go there now to see the exciting items that are up for sale!
