The Wellington Hills Sports Complex? No, it's NOT a done deal!

I sent mine

April 4th is the stated deadline for submitting comments on the proposed Wellington Hills County Park (aka, SPORTS COMPLEX).

I reviewed SEPA sections on Geology and certain portions of the Traffic Study reports.

I followed the specified rules and submitted my comments.

Over the past few days I've also spent considerable time convincing distrustful / angry people to submit their comments.

They didn't want to send in their comments because the SEPA review comments are sent to the Snohomish County department/bureaucracy that designed and promoted the Sports Complex

Yeah, it does seem as if we’re feeding chickens while foxes are in the coop. 

We have no choice but to hope there's a "fail-safe" in place and the foxes follow both the spirit and intent of the rules.

Word is, we will either be getting a form letter saying 'thanks (but no thanks)' or we will be ignored (SOP) … our SEPA comments will filed away, probably in a dark room with a giant-economy sized shredder.
