Speak up at Lake Stevens City Council meeting about Costco

The Costco warehouse store and gas station proposed at 20th Street and Highway 9 in Lake Stevens will have severe major negative traffic impacts on city of Snohomish residents as well as those traveling to and through the town of Snohomish, the U.S. 2 trestle east or west, north or south on Highway 9, east or west on Second Street in Snohomish, 87th Avenue SE north or south, east or west on 30th Avenue SE, east or west on 56th Avenue SE., Sinclair Avenue north or south, north or south on Bickford Avenue and east or west on South Lake Stevens Road.

A public hearing is to be held at 7 p.m. Nov 26 before the Lake Stevens City Council at the Lake Stevens School District Educational Service Center, 12309 22nd St. NE, Lake Stevens.

Once again the City of Lake Stevens, in an effort to suppress turnout and public participation, has scheduled the only opportunity for public comment and participation just two days before Thanksgiving Day.

We hope you can join us at the hearing.

Lake Stevens taxpayers will not be happy to discover that they are going to be on the hook for 60 percent of the estimated $10 million dollars it will cost for the planned Costco development.

We intend to generate a large crowd to let the Lake Stevens City Council, mayor and Costco know that a majority oppose a Costco at this site.

Please join us!
