Stop the SR 169 Asphalt Plant!
Unincorporated King County in the Renton, WA area is a beautiful place to live. This is a rural area with lots of trees, wildlife and farms. Some families have lived here for decades and others just moving in to start their families.
Recently, Lakeside Industries, made it known that it is their intent to build an asphalt plant in the Maple Valley Heights neighborhood. This site is directly on SR 169 and literally a stone's throw away from the Cedar River. We have to stop this plant from being built and ruining the quality of life that we chose when moving into a rural area.
By donating to this fund, you will be contributing to the fight against the build of the asphalt plant. This will allow us to have legal representation to navigate the complex issues of fighting King County to vote to rezone this lot as well as to deny any and all permits for this plant to move forward.
Your contribution will save our quality of life, our health, our home values and so much more!
