Recently, Lakeside Industries, made it known that it is their intent to build an asphalt plant in the Maple Valley Heights neighborhood. This site is directly on SR 169 and literally a stone's throw away from the Cedar River. We have to stop this plant from being built and ruining the quality of life that we chose when moving into a rural area.
By donating to this fund, you will be contributing to the fight against the build of the asphalt plant. This will allow us to have legal representation to navigate the complex issues of fighting King County to vote to rezone this lot as well as to deny any and all permits for this plant to move forward.

Recently, Lakeside Industries, has submitted an application to King County to build an asphalt plant right on the highway and just across the street from the Cedar River.
The residents of Maple Heights, and surrounding neighborhoods, are asking for support to stop the building of this plant. This plant is expected to add 295 trucks per day to the awful traffic issue that already exists. Pollutants will fill the air and potentially contaminate the local ground or the Cedar River. Growing families live here, many children that will be exposed to the harmful impacts of this plant. Seniors who have lived here for 40 or more years that do not need the added Influence of asphalt fumes on their health. There are neighbors who have animals that live in yards just a few hundred feet away. Beautiful fruit trees that will be ruined.
