Picnic Point Forest, Picnic Point Creek and Puget Sound, is Endangered

August 7, 2014

Currently there is a 22-acre heavily wooded forest located on steep slopes above Puget Sound in the landslide-prone Picnic Point area of Snohomish County that is slated for a 112-home development (there are 2 recent documented landslides in the Picnic Point area, so this is not an exaggeration!) It originally was called Horseman’s Trail, but now is called Frognal Estates.  The Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) has been released and Snohomish County Planning and Development Services (PDS) are taking comments on the DEIS and the application for development until August 22nd.  It is particularly important for anyone living in the area to comment, but also good if others can as well.

The community group is called Picnic Point Preservation Committee, and they have a Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/groups/699268643492967/703759996377165/?notif_t=group_activity. There you will find photos, sample letters, and other information.

If you don’t use Facebook, you can read the DEIS, project drawings, Targeted Drainage Report, Geotechnical Reports, etc. on line at: http://snohomishcountywa.gov/2541/Frognal-Estates.

For more information please contact the Picnic Point Preservation Committee through either Emily Mydynski: mydynski@gmail.com or Joan Smith: joan.a.smith@gmail.com.
