I'm including a blow-up of the latest Snohomish Master Plan sketch. 240th St. SE is centered to the drawing.
Included are: the proposed traffic circle, the proposed pedestrian crossing bridge & circular ramp, the proposed mountain bike building (60' x 100' in size), the proposed dog off leash areas, the proposed sports activity building and partials of the proposed parking lots and sports fields.
The following pictures focus on a single tree - a beautiful western red cedar tree.
Driving in either direction of 240th St. SE, at the western most edge of the ex-golf course, on top of a rolling hill, that's where this tree sits in regal splendor.
For location and size of the tree, there's a passing car in the photo.

If I'm reading the Master Plan sketch correctly - this tree will be cut down.
Despite it's presence, despite it's beauty - it will be removed as part of the planned earth leveling process and such things as traffic circles and pedestrian bridges will replace it.
