Architect's drawing of planned Urban Village at Point Wells


The Save Richmond Beach citizens' group has vowed to continue the fight against the mega-development at Point Wells in spite of the set-back at the Court of Appeals. The Court reversed an earlier ruling against a Snohomish County "Urban Center" development at the site, which is at the end of a long, narrow lane.


It is important to note that this loss was not entirely unexpected. Whether we won or lost at the Court of Appeals, we have little doubt that this case would have been appealed to the Supreme Court one way or another.

Save Richmond Beach is asking supporters for contributions to fund the legal team for the appeal to the state Supreme Court.


The important thing to note is that Save Richmond Beach has not accepted a mega-development as a foregone conclusion and is continuing to work towards a resolution through whatever means necessary.  Everyone who cares about our communities and the environment should also continue to fight and not assume this project is a "done deal".  Now more than ever, your support is critical to Save Richmond Beach’s efforts to fight for a development that enhances our community rather than turning it into a thoroughfare.
