Urgent: Tell King County to Plan for a Better Future
-------------------------------------------------------------
In King County, we love our Puget Sound, local farms, clean rivers and lakes, snow-capped peaks.

That's why we support smart growth policies and hold local governments accountable to the Growth Management Act.

So when it comes to setting the countywide framework for county and city smart growth plans and regulations, King County needs to go beyond the past by setting a strong foundation for the future.

Tell the King County growth council to adopt smart growth policies for the future!

Our greatest challenges lie ahead, and our greatest opportunity to meet those challenges is right now.

For the first time ever, King County is conducting a major update of its "countywide planning policies," and citizens have only one public hearing to weigh-in -- this Wednesday. That's why we need you and hundreds of other citizens to send letters to the council and come to the public hearing.

This is critically important. We have three clear fixes:

1. Reduce sprawl in rural areas and save waterways, wetlands, forests, and farms.
2. Build urban centers that support transit, support safe walking and biking, and include adequate housing options and jobs for everyone.
3. Meet the state and regional global warming goals and work to achieve additional science-based reductions.

Click here to send a letter to the King County growth council now.
