Black Diamond didn’t need reform before the Save Black Diamond council members (Brian) Weber and (Pat) Pepper were elected, but Black Diamond needs it now!
Community Events, April 2016
Thank you for the informative article which outlines the City Council decision to install a disc golf course at Lake Wilderness. While we are in favor of new business, we are even more interested in preservation of the natural beauty of the area which includes the safe habitat for wild animals, such as deer, etc. We were devastated to learn of the destruction of almost 9 acres of forest to build and install a disc golf course. We believe this venture cannot financially support itself and will not only be a money loser, but we will all end up with yet another large swath of forest gone, forever.
I read letter published on March 10 from D. Phillip Miller complaining of our representatives (Jay Rodne, Chad Magendanz) actions to reverse initiative 594. I was compelled after reading this to offer opposing opinion supporting these brave legislators.
Voting on the Maple Valley Parks Bond is like buying a new car. The dealership shows me a shiny new car with all of the bells and whistles. Then, they give me the bad news that this particular car can only be purchased as a package deal.
To the Black Diamond community, we thank you. Our food bank has never been so full, which means we can continue to serve anyone who needs food. We have also been able to give out more gas vouchers, Puget Sound Energy assistance, and so much other emergency assistance.
