PERK-People for an Environmentally Responsible Kenmore
As requested in the pre-hearing conference Friday February 3, 2017 petitioners have revised their list of legal issues.
The revised list and Declaration of Service is attached.
As Ecology and WSDOT have taken the position that our appeal was not timely filed, in spite of meeting the City of Seattle's noticed deadline, we are unable to support Ecology's withdrawal at this time.

On behalf of PERK, at the Washington State Legislature hearing in Olympia yesterday, I testified in favor of HB 1028 regarding the asphalt fumes issue in Kenmore.
I delivered our letters of support, authored by PERK members, to the Committee.
The mayor of Kenmore was there to testify "PRO" along with Representative Gerry Pollet who coauthored the bill with Representative Jessyn Farrell.
Here is a video of that session (Our suppporting testimony starts about 11 minutes in).
Please take the time to submit your comments to our reps on this bill
We hope to have a citizen meeting in the next 3 weeks to talk with our community and decide what actions to take next.
Please attend the meeting on Jan 5 at Bastyr University and please ask Park Commissioners to stop any and all significant adverse environmental impacts to St. Edward State Park's natural habitats, by either Mr. Daniel's hotel project or the other project by City of Kenmore to replace the grass field with artificial lighted ballfield, something that would eliminate the darkness needed by birds/amphibians, plants to stay natural.
We must protect our nature by assessing the cumulative impacts of the hotel+the artificial ballfield. Thanks to John Hendrickson, we proved the city did not utilize best available science in promoting the artificial lighted ballfield, but we need to hold strong to protecting nature by not letting the hotel be accepted without first requiring the Daniels project require protection of the natural habitat surrounding the hotel project.
