WHATS HAPPENING IN GLENROSE
ANNOUNCING THE GLENROSE PETITION
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!
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.
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.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
