Hearing reopened on Granite Falls motocross track

GRANITE FALLS — Snohomish County plans to reopen a public hearing on a proposed new motocross track near the Mountain Loop Highway in Granite Falls.

A county hearing examiner ruled May 13 that the track could be built if it complies with a list of conditions, such as managing water runoff, studying sloped terrain and reducing noise levels. The hearing is being reopened to review some stipulations, specifically those regarding slope and sound analysis, according to a June 25 order.

The hearing is not meant to challenge the May decision allowing the project to move forward, according to the order. The county wants MXGP of Kirkland to submit new information by July 31, after which a date and time limit will be set for reopening the hearing.
