Protest at City Hall Planning Commission meeting Thursday

Residents from the 145th Station rezone area who had expected to be able to comment during the extension of the Planning Commission meeting on Monday, August 22 protested outside City Hall.

The Commission meeting was continued from the previous Thursday, August 18. Residents interpreted statements at the end of the Thursday meeting to mean that public comment would also be continued to the Monday meeting.

The City issued a statement saying the Public Comment was closed and the Monday meeting was for the Planning Commission to finish their deliberations.

This City Council is stacked, the Planning Commission, who the City Council appoints is stacked, all of these city sponsored neighborhood councils and issue committees are stacked. Stacked with those willing to fight tooth and nail to PRESERVE the status quo and interests of the commercial and residential real estate industry and the banks that finance and make a pretty penny off of this disruption. They've found a clever way to mask and re-brand this obscene capitalism as "progress" and get you to nod your head, but don't be fooled.

The protest derived from the information received just last week that Sound Transit has not finalized the location of the 145th rail station. They now propose to move it 400 feet north which will mean ten additional homes will be taken. With this new information many of us feel that an updated environmental impact statement is needed. At the very least, deliberations on the rezone should be halted until Sound Transit determines the exact location for the station. They will have public comment on that probably in November. The public has not had formal notice of this change. Therefore, additional public comment is warranted.
