The Court of Appeals of the state of Washington reversed the Central Puget Sound Growth Management Hearings Board decision regarding the master planned development ordinances for YarrowBay's Villages and Lawson Hills in Black Diamond.

The first paragraph of the ruling stated: "The Central Puget Sound Growth Management Hearings Board lacked jurisdiction to review the 2010 ordinances enacted by the City of Black Diamond approving the master plan development permits for Yarrow Bay. We reverse"
