After experiencing standing room only crowds at every previous hearing on this subject, King County wisely changed venues to the Snoqualmie Valley Alliance Church just outside Fall City. Despite being one of the largest venues in the area, overflow crowds packed the church with at least 500 people in the main room, a packed balcony, a filled hallway, and people crowding into every place they could fit. Speakers were turned on in the lobby so that those unable to enter the main room could still listen.
Make sure you attend this last meeting so King County officials can hear what you think about being blamed for pollution with your septic system. We all know septic systems are far superior to the municipal combined sewer storm water overflows that so often pollute the Puget Sound.
The Spokane County Chapter of Citizens’ Alliance for Property Rights (CAPR) has some concerns with the proposed Voluntary Stewardship Program (VSP). The VSP was created when Governor Christine Gregoire commissioned Bill Ruckelshaus to protect environmentally sensitive areas in our state while preserving farm land. Please include this letter as public testimony that our chapter is not in favor of the VSP.
