RE:  Request for Public Meeting on Project No. 3003629 located at 4702 47th Avenue NE


Dear Ms. Sugimura and Mr. Deherrera:


On behalf of our neighbors, the Laurelhurst Community Club Board of Trustees requests that a public meeting be held in our neighborhood on Project No. 3003629 located at 4702 47th Avenue NE.  While SMC 23.76.015 requires that 50 or more persons file a written request for a public meeting, we have enclosed petitions signed by 80 of our neighbors.  The fact that we were able to obtain the petition signatures in a one-day period demonstrates the interest of our community in this project and the many issues it raises. 


Please let us know the time and date of the public meeting as soon as possible.  If you have questions about our request for a public meeting, please contact us.  Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
