2019 ANNUAL MEMBERSHIP FORM FOR NEW AND RENEWING MEMBERS
Dear Glenrose Neighbor:
Don’t you feel blessed to live here and call Glenrose
home? We have so much to be thankful for. As we dig out
from a trying winter sense of community comes to mind –
neighbors helping neighbors whether it was plowing
someone out, searching for lost pets, or simply having
fun sledding, snowshoeing, or skiing together. We are
there for each other!
The Glenrose Association fosters that sense of community
in everything we do.

Read on to see the ways you can impact our quality of life here is
Glenrose. We owe it to ourselves and to all those that came before us to
fight for our Glenrose way of life.
Do you recall this image in a newsletter last
year? We jokingly called it early morning soccer
as two moose grazed on the Morning Star pasture at the corner of 37th
and Glenrose. The only way we can support our team is to cheer for them
with our screams, our letters of support, and our financial support. Our
success will keep our team together as we will all benefit from our
sense of community!
At our May meeting we gave folks talking points that they could use to
write letters sharing their passion for Glenrose. Read on to learn how
you can take action and ownership in your way of life here in Glenrose.
We have revamped the Glenrose website and now have
a specific tab for information on the proposed sports complex. Click on
this link -
Sports Complex Issues, to see what is inside. Here is
a roadmap for you and some ideas on how you can preserve and protect
the Glenrose we have all come to appreciate so much.
Of all your efforts
the number one priority is to write a letter
and/or email to Washington State to let them know your feelings about
the State Grant Application. Click on this link -
Grant Application, to learn how the developer is
applying for $350,000 in state taxpayer funds to assist in building the
proposed sports complex. Pages 1, 4, 10, and 11 have specific
information on the Zakheim Youth Sports Complex. A decision will be made
June 27th by the state on which developments will receive
money. Our community needs to let them know we do not support this
development and certainly don't want our taxpayer dollars going towards
it! Here is the link for how to provide public comment -
Ways to Make Public Comment. If
you would prefer you can send your letter to TGA and we will bundle them
and send them all together to the state. Mail to our PO Box
30202, 99223, or email to
email@example.com. There are several glaring
issues connected with the application that is a cause for alarm and
should be pointed out to the state. We have listed several below.
SYSA cannot move quickly to complete the project
per requirements of the Grant. Point out that there are significant
obstacles for this project to proceed quickly if at all!
The Grading Permit referenced in the application
was taken out by Spokane South Little League and has long since
expired. SYSA indicates in the grant that it has received a grading
permit which is absolutely false!
In the grant manual it says media coverage can
serve as evidence of public support. Point out the many media
articles, both newspaper and television, that sight just the opposite.
Tell the state board about the many signs in the community protesting
this development! The documentation from SYSA states that it has the
support of the community. The state needs to know that our community
is unanimously opposed to this development! They need to know you are
opposed to this development!
The project manager for the grant, Allison Green,
was told by SYSA that they had met with the community and resolved
their differences. While it is true we have met with SYSA it is
categorically false that anything has been resolved! Let the grant
board know that!
The state is required to consult with the
Department of Archaeology and Historic Preservation and affected
Native American tribes for a determination of possible impacts. Given
the rich history in Glenrose it is critical that consultation with the
Spokane Tribe, the Coeur d'Alene Tribe, and DAHP occurs when
considering this grant.
If you would like to read all the details about
this grant application including who in the area wrote letters of
support for the grant click on this link -
AS WAS MENTIONED ABOVE WRITING OR
EMAILING TO THE STATE REGARDING THIS GRANT IS CRTICAL. THERE IS A TIME
LINE. COMMENTS MUST BE SUBMITTED AND IN THE STATES HANDS BY JUNE
10, 2019 TO BE SAFE AND INSURE YOUR COMMENTS ARE RECEIVED
IN A TIMELY WAY.
Plan on attending the monthly meeting. We will
have handouts on talking points and help for you on writing letters
expressing your feelings on the proposed sports complex. We will have a
list of entities and their addresses you can write letters to including
various newspapers and the state recreation and conservation office. If
you don't think we have something to campaign for just look at the
pictures below! Come to the meeting to get the latest on what is
happening in the Glenrose Community.
THEY ARE BACK
TO RECLAIM THEIR RIGHTFUL HOME HERE IN GLENROSE!
