Wood Creek Neighborhood Meeting Recap
On Sat. Aug. 28th over 50 people attended a neighborhood (Valley View and Eastmont) meeting to hear updates and ask questions regarding the future development of the 98 acre Wood Creek Forest.  Our Stewards of Wood Creek Everett Board who planned this gathering were really pleased with the turnout and our elected officials and community leaders who came to bring the updates and responded to well over 20 questions that were asked.  The elected officials were:

  • Paul Roberts - Everett City Council member who is the point for this issue
  • Megan Dunn - Snohomish County Council District 2 (the district that Wood Creek Forest is in)

Community Leaders were:

  • Nick Bratton - representing Forterra - an environmental conservation organization that does work in the Everett area and all over Western Washington.
  • Todd Gray - the environmental rep from the Tulalip Tribe

The next steps are for the geo-technical study to become a public report regarding the soil stability and praticality of building on in this area. As soon as this report is ready we will distrubute it publicly. The overall goal is the conservation of this historic forest which is so valuable for the well-being of our local environment. If you have any questions regarding this effort to conserve this historic forest and creek send an email to info@savewoodcreek.org. As soon as the geo-technical study is released the board will sponsor another publc neighborhood meeting.
