Attend the Open Houses and Speak Up

King County is planning a series of Open Houses this weekend, Saturday and Sunday, June 23 and 24. The goals is to “to discuss details of the bioretention swales planned for your block.” If you have questions or concerns about the Barton CSO project, please don’t remain silent. Silence implies acceptance. Please attend the Open Houses, ask the hard questions and carefully note how your questions are answered–or not. You may want to ask exactly how deep, wide and steep the swales will be. Ask about a written release to absolve you from any and all liability if and / or when someone is hurt due to the bioswales. Ask for written indemnification–which means King County will cover the costs of any damages that occur during bioswale construction and afterwards. Ask for a written guaranteee that King County will conduct maintenance on the swales–and ask what the maintenance schedule will be. Check out the “Issues” tab for many other questions–and don’t forget to to visit the “Take Action” tab to sign the online petition.

    I do not think much of your bioswales. I do not want 34th ave. between s.w.trenton and henderson to be jack hammered up and trees brought down that we have taken care of for years. I do not want standing water in the ditches you plan on putting in. I do not want one of my neighbors small children to drown in one of the ditches. I am a tax payer and I do not want you on my street doing things that I do not want you to do. Stay off my street and my neighbors street. What is wrong with you people? Who gave you the o.k. to do these things. If you need something to do then dig up your own streets, stay off of mine. One more thing keep all your lies to yourself I don’t need them.
