    MX track needs your support.

    You guys realize the plan is to continue the gravel pit at the same time as the track for a number of years. Also we dont hear the Gravel pit. Also they shut down every day at 4:00. Furthermore the mining is basically done. It is a reclamation project now. This argument doesnt cut it.

    Actually I live exactly 1/2 mile from the existing pit. So I dont know how you can say that. Look, Here is the facts. It is a residetial area perdiod! No disputing that as some of the smarter people on this board have pointed out to you fanatics. Putting something like this in a neighborhood will only hurt your future access and NOT help it! Why cant you people see this? Stop beeing so closed minded and look at the facts people! Last poster, You are just misinformed. I would suggest you do some more reading. I didnt buy for dirt cheap at all! I plan to live here until my kids are raised.

MXGP’s Master Permit Application and Conditional Use Permit were received by Snohomish County on February 8, 2006. The Master Application identifies the 58-acre site in Maltby as an “R-5” Zone, and both documents clearly indicate the intended use of the site will be a “racetrack”. However, the 58-acre site at 19000 Yew Way lies partially or fully within the revised Mineral Resource Overlay (MRO) issued on February 1, 2006 by Snohomish County. The MRO is part of Snohomish County’s Growth Management Act (GMA) Comprehensive Plan. Snohomish County Code SCC30.22.110 (called the “Use Matrix”) clearly identifies what development or land use can and cannot occur in an “R-5 with MRO” Zone. A “racetrack” is explicitly excluded from this Zone, and is not allowed even with a Conditional Use Permit. MXGP’s proposed 58-acre site spans seven tax parcels. Even just one tax parcel zoned as “R-5 with MRO” would conflict with MXGP’s design for the motocross track. This overlooked zoning restriction may permanently defeat the MXGP proposal at the Maltby site, forcing MXGP to reconsider its four other candidate sites. It is ironic since MXGP was required to shutdown its previous track in Monroe due to a zoning violation. Residents in the Cathcart, Clearview, and Maltby areas appear strongly opposed to the motocross track. A community opposition meeting on March 2 attracted over 300 residents. Residents established the websites nomotorcrossinmaltby.blogspot.com and www.nomaltbytrack.org as communication tools, and the MCCC has enlisted the support of local businesses. Residents submitted approximately 1,200 opposition letters to Snohomish County by a March 13 deadline. This is rumored to be the largest volume of opposition letters Snohomish County has ever received for a proposal. The MCCC is also focused on contaminated waste dumped at the same site. The Snohomish Health District and Rinker Materials have exchanged a series of memos on the issue. The Health District identified levels of heavy metals that exceed Soil Cleanup levels and have shown the potential for leaching into groundwater. The heavy metals include arsenic, cadmium, chromium, and lead. In a December 30 memo Rinker Materials admitted it dumped the materials but they posed no threat to the environment. On February 3 the Health District disagreed with Rinker’s assessment and issued a Health Officer’s Order to Rinker Materials to submit a plan within 60 days to clean up the site. An inspection will be conducted on approximately April 4, 2006. This is a unique situation in which backwash solids containing heavy-metal concentrations have been dumped in the soil above the previously-exposed Maltby aquifer. All indications are such solids should have been dumped in a lined, solid-waste facility. The long-term health effects are unknown and the MCCC feels an adequate analysis is necessary. The concern is families on private wells may need to perform monthly tests of their water supply for as long as 10 years. Total cost of the tests could exceed $10,000.00 per household. There have been no discussions of who should pay for these monthly tests. There is also concern the Cross Valley Water District could detect elevated levels of these heavy metals in future water it receives from the Maltby aquifer. The MCCC is researching ecology and environmental laws to determine the City of Seattle’s involvement. The contaminated waste originated from a City of Seattle water-treatment facility on the Tolt River.

    BTW, It is not anti access crowd. It is anti motocross in a residential area. Keep it striaght. I know when you go through life getting bullied all the time it is tough. You can get help for that.

    Why is it a Lie? He stated this from what he recalls. Are you saying that you have never been to a track there this has happened? On who I am, I wish you were more informed. But you will be soon. And I am sure you will be suprised. Btw, Thanks to your pushpins I now know who you are.

    Just trying it is not good for anyone with the possiblity of it going away. It is not good for strode. It is not good for the riders and it is not good for us. Gary invests the money and then it is taken away. That is not good for him. "Your" so called track is taken away. And we have to kick you out!!!!. Hey Dirt, I see that you have resorted to name calling. That is great! Shows how old you are. Also I just read the letter that was posted by Mr. Eldridge. As an Xracer I would agree with everything he said. How can you argue any of the points he made? Seriously I am asking.... However dont answer if you cant refrain from beeing a

    Dont worry about the point on "what you wish for" We have plans. BTW did you watch the news tonight on King 5? Because it seems it may not be zoned correctly. Oh, that sucks! If you look in the Snohomish County Code, section 30.22.110 "Rural and Resource use matrix" you will see that the development of racetracks are prohibited on lands designated R-5 MRO (mining resource overlay).

    You are such a moron! It is filtered from the source for Seattle water. It is Seattle water! Nice assumption made on Calling me Jon, At least you have the First letter correct.

    With all of the trashing that some in your community is doing to peoples property I dont think that would be wise. Do you?

    Seriously, I do thank him as this this contamination thing may have got past if people werent looking. BTW dirt. If it was bad enough to be filtered from Seattle water why is it good enough to be in our water... Also _450 I see that you dont live any where near the track as you are at least two miles away. So dont use the "I live here" crap on us.
