UPDATE: Monday legislative hearing important to future of Point Wells

Monday, June 10, 2013

Point Wells Update from the Richmond Beach Community Association:

Today's hearing on House Bill 2068 was canceled. Our understanding of the reason for cancellation was that the legislature was not in session today because of the 10am memorial service for the late State Sen. Mike Carroll (R-Lakewood).

The last day of the special session is tomorrow, so likely HB 2068 will not be voted on this session. If new information on this develops, we will keep you posted.

Save Richmond Beach is advising supporters to contact legislators before Monday regarding HB 2068, scheduled to be heard at a 9:30am hearing in Olympia.

HB 2068 negates the bill recently signed by the governor giving Woodway the option to unilaterally annex Point Wells.
The proposed bill (HB 2068) is supported by the Point Wells developer (BSRE), Snohomish County and the City of Shoreline and opposed by the Town of Woodway and Save Richmond Beach.

Those who attend the hearing can testify or simply sign in as pro or con.
