Although the Washington State Supreme released a ruling in favor of the City of Woodinville and Concerned Neighbors of Wellington (CNW) in a recent land rezone case, CNW is calling for residents to take further action at Tuesday's city council meeting.

In June, by a 9-0 vote, the court agreed that the city of Woodinville was within its rights to deny Phoenix Development a zone change that would have increased the number of houses allowed in the Wellington neighborhood.

At Tuesday's (Sept. 18) Woodinville City Council meeting, a Public Hearing is set regarding revising a related zoning code (Ordinance 532). 

In an email from CNW, they called for people to attend the meeting:

"The next battle we need to win is to permanently change the zoning code.

Please attend the City Council Meeting IN PERSON on September 18, as well as sending in your email with the requested change in minimum lot size to 35,000 sq feet.  Your physical presence in the audience makes a difference!!  Council Members will vote based on input they receive and also based on having a huge turnout in the audience on September 18!" 

They were also encouraging people to email city councilors:

"Send email to the City Council asking them to change the minimum lot size in R-1 to 35,000 sq. ft or more as the minimum size, when there are no critical areas present, and a minimum lot size in the R-1 to 31,000 sq. ft when critical areas are present.. This is the best way to help preserve the existing well-established neighborhood character of our R-1-zoned areas today."
