|Architect's drawing of part of the planned "urban village"|
at Point Wells in Snohomish county
Save Richmond Beach and Woodway have asked the Washington State Supreme Court to review the Court of Appeals decision allowing an Urban Center at Point Wells, which would have the Court taking a fresh look at the validity of BSRE's application.
Woodway has joined SRB in challenging the Court of Appeals decision, and both are asking the City Council of Shoreline to file a "friend of the court" (amicus curiae) brief on behalf of Save Richmond Beach / Woodway.
An amicus curiae brief from the Shoreline City Council to the State Supreme Court would help to persuade the Court to take our case for review.
BSRE plans to clean up the Paramount Oil storage facility at Point Wells and gradually build a mega-apartment high-rise village on the site. The site is fully within Snohomish County but the only access is through Shoreline.
