Isn’t it amazing that Snohomish County could allow a new city of up to 6,000 homes to be constructed in a rural area around the Seven Lakes?
Meanwhile, small private landowners are lectured about wetlands and the environment.
If you want to build anything on your own property, you need to have lots of money to give to the county, and possibly years of red tape before they decide that you have given enough money and time. Then and only then will they give you permission to do anything with your own property.
There could be a whole new city going up in rural Snohomish County that is currently zoned for 5-acre parcels. What does that matter, when these developers can get a variance from the county? So what would be the reason that they would allow the developers the power to pave over the whole county? It is money to be gained and lots of it. It seems like we have been sold out by the county for the Master Builders.
I am all for progress, but this is ridiculous! Oh, and did I mention that our yearly reassessment of our eight acres went up 930 percent this year? I guess our county is for sale after all.
