IN CASE YOU MISSED IT
As many of you are aware TGA has been running a statement ad in the S/R multiple times this month confirming the community's commitment to keeping Glenrose rural! On December 15th we had a full page ad with 630 petition names. If you didn't see it click on this link, FULL PAGE, to see the ad. If you signed the petition and aren't in the paper it is simply because of newspaper deadlines and when you signed the petition.

A quick update on our appeal to Superior Court. It was filed on April 14th, 2021. Initial hearing dates and case schedules are being worked out between the county attorney and our attorney, David Bricklin.

RECENT SPORTS COMPLEX NEWS

The Spokane County Hearing Examiner, Mr. David Hubert, made his ruling. If you recall we appealed the Planning Director's administrative interpretation of the Sports Complex. The Planning Director, John Pederson, confirmed that the proposed sports complex is a "Community Recreation Facility" and therefore is allowed in our rural community. The Hearing Examiner agreed with the planning director. To read his ruling click on this link, Hearing Examiner Decision. To the consternation of our attorney, our Glenrose legal committee, and the entire Glenrose Association Board, neither the hearing examiner or the planning director have been willing to look at what this proposed sports complex actually is. Their position is that in our rural area the only thing that is allowed is a community recreation facility so that is what the proposed sports complex must be. For those of us that have followed this case this line of thinking makes absolutely no sense! 

After conferring with our attorney the Glenrose Association Board of Directors has decided to appeal this decision to Superior Court where we will have an entity that will give this case a totally unbiased look. The hearing examiner works for the planning department and unfortunately he generally finds for the county. At least in superior court we will have someone who will look at the facts of this case for what they are. Keep your fingers crossed. Our appeal will be filed by April 21, 2021.    

 


Board of Director News

We are excited to welcome Camille Staack Miller on to our board of directors. Camille is part of an old time family living here in Glenrose. She brings many years of perspective to our board of  directors!
We are still operating without a president which has left the board with a host of challenges. We continue to work to get the position filled
 

SPORTS COMPLEX NEWS

There is still no news from Lincoln County Superior Court on a date for our case to be heard before the court. In the meantime we continue to save money to pay our for our projected attorney costs when the case is tried. At our January monthly meeting there were a lot of questions about the case which is completely understandable in as much as it has been pending since 2008! If you have questions many of the answers are on our website. Click on this link, SPORTS COMPLEX INFO, to read about it.

History of the Sports Complex

After applying for a grading permit in early January and the County Planning Department asking for public  comment through February 26th there have been no actions. The planning department is reviewing the comments but has not made a ruling on the project. That does not mean the TGA legal team has been dorment.


1- TGA appealed the SEPA application on 2/26/20.
2- Our Attorneys filed their brief with the court on our mandamus case. It is a very interesting read and gets to the heart of the case. Click on this link -
WRIT OF MANDAMUS BRIEF, to read the brief and fully understand the implications of our case with Spokane County Planning Department.
2- A court date for our writ of mandamus case with the county has been set for 6/26/20. The public is suppose to be able to attend the hearing but due to the social distancing rules at the time it is hard to say what the court will do. As soon as we are notified we will send the community a notice but in the meantime save 6/26/20 at 3pm if you plan on attending the hearing and listen to the county's arguments as to why they shouldn't respond to our request.

Folks this is your opportunity to let the county know your thoughts. Don't miss this opportunity to express your feelings.
