Democratic State Rep. Cindy Ryu told me Monday evening that her support for the bill to force Snohomish County to negotiate over Point Wells goes back to her local involvement.

She notes that she has supported protecting Richmond Beach as a neighborhood advocate, 32nd Legislative District Democratic official and Shoreline City Council member.

The bill limits development density at Point Wells to that of nearby cities unless Snohomish County negotiates over effects of the development with those cities,

Ryu praised Rep. Ruth Kagi, the bill’s principal author, for bringing people together over the issue. She said that Kagi has been gracious in consulting with her, with Shoreline and Woodway staff members and with neighborhood residents.

Ryu issued this statement:
“As a Richmond Beach resident, I feel that this bill is necessary to preserve our community’s quality of life. The people of Shoreline and Woodway deserve to have a say in a project that has the potential to drastically impact their neighborhoods. I am proud to be a co-sponsor to Rep. Kagi’s bill, and look forward to helping resolve this issue in a mutually beneficial way for all parties involved.”
