Dear friends/Snohomish County clean environment supporters,
A very important forum about protecting Snohomish County’s sustainability will be held this
Saturday, Oct 12th.
It is a very public arena to discuss upcoming issues that could adversely affect Snohomish County and Puget Sound.
The organizer, Kristin Kelly from FutureWise, does not have all of the information about the dams and will likely applaud SnoPUD’s green policies.
PLEASE make an effort to attend. SnoCounty Council members will be interviewed on their positions about certain topics. This is where our voices will be heard.
Please forward this info to EVERYONE who stands to lose from SnoPUD’s projects to dam Washington’s Rivers to sell the minimal power to California.
What does it take to build livable, sustainable communities? How can we be a part of planning our neighborhoods? What do you want your community to look like in 20 years?
Snohomish County is making decisions now – about how and where it will put new homes and jobs – that will shape our future through 2035. Every step of the County’s process there will be opportunities for you to weigh in and make sure the council adopts policies to make that growth create more livable, sustainable communities.
This is why you should join WEC on Saturday, October 12th at the 4th Annual Livable Snohomish County Summit and County Council Candidate Forum.Please RSVP before October 8th to firstname.lastname@example.org.
When: Saturday, October 12 from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Where: PUD Building, 2320 California Street, Everett
This event is FREE to everyone and will include a free lunch (with gluten and lactose free options). Because we are preparing lunch, we do need an RSVP so we can plan for food. RSVP to email@example.com.

Dannenberg, MD, MPH, Affiliate Professor at the University of Washington Department of Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences in the UW School of Public Health and in the Department of Urban Design and Planning in the UW College of Built Environments; and Sara Schott Nikolic, Principal Planner with Puget Sound Regional Council.
