PERK’s challenge to the Sunbrook housing development:

UPDATE (3/2/2010): PERK hoping for settlement with Phoenix Development Inc (PDI) but Snohomish County Superior Court date still scheduled for April 16 2010

UPDATE (1/25/2010): PERK is presently trying to settle with PDI but is also moving forward on the LUPA petition at Snohomish Superior Court. Court is set for April 16, 2010 9am.

On November 10, 2009 the Brier City Council unanimously approved the Sunbrook Plat. Possible Next Steps include: (1) filing an appeal of the decision in Snohomish County; (2) negotiating for a settlement; (3) appealing to the Growth Management Hearings Board due to Brier having an antiquated 1992 Critical Areas Ordinance that is not based on Best Available Science.
