    If you have to take our parking away from our bought property that we under all conditions NEED than there has to be another way. My husband has one leg and needs parking definitely close to the house. PLEASE FIND ANOTHER WAY OUT OF OUR WAY!!!

    • Dear Cathy:
      King County says they will take into consideration those who have known disabilities as they build bioswales. I don’t know if a bioswale is slated to go in front of your home, but you will definitely want to let King County know about your accessibility concerns if you have not done so already. Unfortunately, the problem for many people is that if they develop a disability later, after the bioswales are built, it will be too late. The bioswales will permanently be in front of their homes and parking and accessibility will be permanently impacted.
