Motorists have been puzzling over signs near N 175th and Meridian, one across from Meridian Park Elementary and the other in Ronald Bog park along N 175th.

The signs are related to the wetland mitigation project that will be constructed by Sound Transit next year to mitigate for their proposed impacts to wetlands on the east side of I-5 that will be impacted by the Light Rail project.

Here is the link to the Critical Areas Special Use Permit Notice of Application that is posted on the signs at the park and near the impacted wetlands.

The background of the project is outlined in the Council Staff Report from the June 25, 2018, meeting when the Conservation Easement was authorized for this project. (If you get a blank page when you open this link, scroll right and left to find the document. The page is the width of the very large drawings.)

Sound Transit’s display board from the June 27 open house that includes the Ronald Bog wetland mitigation project.

Basically, City staff in multiple departments worked with Sound Transit to identify and develop a mitigation project that would meet the City’s requirement for off-site mitigation to occur within the impacted sub-basin and would meet state and federal requirements as well. Trail improvements and educational signs will also be installed with the project.

It seems to me that our esteemed City Council, city staff, and planning commission are reeking havoc upon our beloved city for the sake of the almighty dollar!
