>Citizens Forum – 6/21/08

>Excellent and Timely Opportunity. A forum to discuss legal issues such as we are dealing with in Illahee is going to be held at the Sylvan Way library next Saturday (6/28/08) from 1:30 – 4:30 pm. This is an excellent opportunity to learn about the legal avenues available to communities and a chance to have related legal questions answered.

Forum. Ryan Vancil, the lawyer the Illahee Community Club has retained for the Illahee Outfall appeal, has conducted workshops before and is conducting this forum in our area, and the timing could not have been better for community residents, who have had more legal questions than we can answer. For example, we know that many in the Fir Drive area are concerned about the upcoming Timbers Edge development and would like to see community issues resolved with the county before the county approves the developers plans and another legal battle ensues. Questions like these and an understanding of the legal tools are what the forum is all about.

Description in the Notice. “In a 3-hour informational forum, matters pertaining to land use laws will be discussed to encourage an enhanced knowledge of local land use law to empower citizens.”

Selected Community. Illahee and a few other communities in the county have been selected to receive this notice of the citizens forum and the law firm would like to have a count of how many people are planning on attending. You can email us and we will pass the information on or call 206.842.7811.

Thank you for providing us notice of events like these!
