WRITE A LETTER!!!

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.

The two pictures above come with a bit of history about Glenrose. One thing common to both is the sentiment of the community regarding the proposed sports complex - WE DON'T WANT IT AND WE'RE WILLING TO FIGHT FOR OUR COMMUNITY!

The picture on the left is one of the oldest structures in Glenrose. The barn, built by Alpheus 'Alf' Williamson, was built in the 1880's. Alpheus was a son of Robert and Sarah Williamson who are regarded as the first settlers in Glenrose. 

The picture on the right has a fascinating history of its own! Eremurus robustus or Desert Candles are flowers native to Turkestan. Glenrose pioneer, Roy C. Berk was a friend of John Duncan (Duncan Gardens in Manito Park is named after him). In the 1940's Mr. Duncan gave bulbs to Roy and these flowers got their start here in Glenrose. They are in bloom right now so look for them and enjoy the history behind them. 

GLENROSE MONTHLY MEETING NOTICE

People have been concerned about their property values if the proposed sports complex comes to Glenrose. It is a fair concern to have! One of our local residents, realtor Cynthia Gustafson with John L Scott Realty, will lead a discussion regarding the impact of the proposed development on our property values. Any other realtors in the community are invited to come and share their knowledge as well. What kind of a tax is the Spokane County Planning Department levying on all of us? Come to the meeting to learn more! We will also have reports from our legal team and from our fund raising committee. Don't miss this meeting. We will start at 7pm sharp on Wednesday, June 12th  at the Moran Prairie Library.
 
IMPACT OF PROPOSED SPORTS COMPLEX ON YOUR PROPERTY VALUE
Unfortunately the realtor we had arranged to lead the conversation on this important topic will not be able to attend our June meeting. We have tried to find a replacement but at this moment have not come up with anyone. If any of you have knowledge on the topic plan on coming to the meeting to join in the conversation.
Other items on the agenda are as follows.
  • Report from our Legal committee.
  • Report from our fund raising committee
  • Plan on signing our petition confirming your opposition to the construction of the proposed sports complex.   PS. We are looking for volunteers to gather signatures on our petition.
Many folks have written letters and emails to the Washington State Recreation and Conservation Office regarding the proposed sports complex grant application. There is still time if you haven't had a chance. Click on this link to learn more about making comments - How to make public comment.
Some really excellent letters to the editor of the Spokesman Review have been written. If you would like to read them click on this link - Letters to the Editor. Write one yourself! Spokane needs to know. We look forward to seeing all of you who can make it to the Wednesday meeting.

 

A decision will be made on 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 rchyslop@msn.com. There are several glaring issues connected with the application that is a cause for alarm and should be pointed out to the state.

GLENROSE RESIDENTS GO TOE TO TOE WITH SYSA

That was the headline in the S/R yesterday. If you missed the article and would like to read  it click on this link, Front Page. The community is waking up and want our voice heard!
There was an excellent news clip on KXLY after our May monthly meeting. In case you missed it click on this link, KXLY News Clip, to watch the video (Note that if there is an advertisement at the start of the video, just skip it).

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 practice 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.

  • Click on this link, Media Contacts, to find media outlets to send your letters to.
  • Not sure what to write about? Click on this link, Talking Points, to get ideas on what is important to you that you would like to share with folks who may not understand your passion for Glenrose. 
  • This link, Letters to the Newspaper, will take you to articles that have been written in the past. They are a great read and offer up some ideas.
  • Not into writing or live in an area that would be great to display a yard sign? Click on this link, Sign Order, and we'll deliver one to your door.  


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 on 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 rchyslop@msn.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 - Project Attachments.

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.
