The Snohomish County Council will hold a hearing on Wednesday, October 3, 2018 at 1:30pm in the Council Chambers on the 8th floor of the Robert J. Drewel Building, 3000 Rockefeller Ave. in Everett.

The Council will hear BSRE's appeal of the Hearing Examiner's re-affirmation of his denial of BSRE's development application for Point Wells. (See article BSRE appeals decision of Hearing Examiner)

BSRE will have 20 minutes to present their arguments, then the public will have three minutes each to make their comments.

If the Council upholds the Hearing Examiner's denial, the next level of appeal will be to Superior Court where only BSRE and the County can present arguments.

The Sno-King Environmental Coalition, a local group opposing the Point Wells development, plans to have residents there to offer comments, and point out the issues with the development.

They said, "We think it is important that our neighborhood be heard before the Council makes its decision. 
"We think the most likely outcome is that the Council will re-affirm the Hearing Examiner's decision, but that's not a guarantee."

Issues with the Point Wells development include height of the buildings, proximity to the high water mark, building in front of a landslide area, transportation and roads to and from the site. (See article Hearing Examiner rejects most of BSRE's motion to reconsider Point Wells project.)
