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!

Friends, more good news – Lakeside Industries has asked for an extension to submit answers to DPER’s request for documentation regarding wetlands, traffic, drainage, and more, to this October. This gives us the opportunity to build support and request action from our political leaders. With enough of your support, we can get the permit denied and put this entire nightmare behind us. This is an especially good opportunity to continue building on our successes.

There are many ways you can help:

1. Keep writing to our political leaders, many of whom have gubernatorial or presidential aspirations – Contact list here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/94hiij2efsju566/Asphalt%20Plant%20Contact%20List.docx?dl=0 Hand-written letters are especially effective.

2. Keep posting No Asphalt signs everywhere. Even handmade signs are effective.

3. Keep contributing to our Legal Defense Fund – every dollar counts.

4. Share our Change.org petition. Currently we have nearly 5,000 signatures.

Hope to see you all (1) for our monthly protest this Saturday, Aug. 11th from 2-4 p.m. at the proposed site [18825 SE Maple Valley Road] and (2) at the community meeting this Sunday, Aug. 12th at the Fairwood Library from 3:30-5 p.m.

Keep up the great work and momentum!
