We are concerned citizens from Pierce County. Our goal is to protect our Residential Resource Zones. We believe that as residents of Pierce County we have the right to a clean, healthy, and sustainable environment. Elected officials have a moral duty to represent and include the concerns of their constituents when making changes to public policy.
Together, we are working to protect Pierce County’s Residential-Resource Zones and stop the proposed high density Pierce County Village from having detrimental effects on the Spanaway Marsh wetland and its tributaries. Spanaway Marsh serves as protection in high-density flood events, aids in protecting our water quality by filtering our drinking water, provides habitat for listed and endangered plants and wildlife. Additionally, Spanaway Marsh aids in groundwater recharge and erosion control. Per the Shoreline Management Act, (SMA) our shorelines and wetlands are among the most valuable and fragile of our states natural resources.
Pierce County proclaims, the current and allowed density of 1 – 3 houses per acre in Residential Resource Zones is not changing. Contrarily, the Pierce County Village plan is designed for 315 buildings on 27 buildable acres. Pierce County’s recently adopted code changes were customized to “force” the Pierce County Village into the fragile wetland of Spanaway Marsh, an area in which high density zoning is not, and should not, be permitted.
Maintain status quo within Spanaway Marsh and other RR Zones and avert the negative economic and environmental impacts that the Pierce County Village will have on our community.
