Join a BIGGER VOICE in Rural King County!
Our way of life here in rural SE King County is unique, treasured and vulnerable:
Air, water and noise pollution, development and traffic excess, industrialization, mining, massive truck traffic and more threaten the quality of life if not monitored. How to have a reasonable voice and influence on the management of our unincorporated lands?
Join your voice with your neighbors across SE King County in the newly formed Enumclaw Plateau Community Association (EPCA) and have a direct line to King County government! King County has announced a new department that encourages a robust conversation and input from unincorporated rural King County patrons. Think of it as a “City Hall” for rural residents. They need to hear from us on a regular basis – they want to hear from us – together we can influence decisions to find sensible solutions to growth, recreation needs, and environmental protection for the future. To that end, we have been granted $2,500 by King County to get our voices organized!
- Your King Conservation District, a non-regulatory special purpose district, offers many free services and technical assistance to county landowners (did you read free?)
- Hear about proposed trails to be developed, parks and open spaces
- Support the request for a full Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Enumclaw Recycle Center that threatens the Bass Lake Complex, Green-Duwamish River and would increase truck traffic on State Route 169 at the Franklin Road intersection with numerous trucks per day
- Give input on the King County Comprehensive Plan in it’s mid-term review – right now!
