west richland: Series re-print - 06/22/07 01:57 PM
I wrote a series of five posts about West Richland and a propsed LID.  They precede this in five separate posts.  West Richland is an interesting area because it's still kind of growing...finding its identity.  As a Realtor who serves this area, I like to chronicle some of the growing pains.  Mostly because it's fun to look back in a few years and say, "Wow!  Remember that?" … (0 comments)

Thought I'd change the title ...
In the face of more opposition, they decided to do it anyway.  "They" being the CID, and the "opposition" being an additional 174 objections to the Belmont LID.  
Clearly, this is a more accurate assessment of how people feel.  If it really bothers someone, hopefully he or she has spoken up now.  In the meantime, the majority still rules...

Gee, this is getting a little like Rocky...
Anyway, the Tri-City Herald recently reported that the CID is going to take another look at the "if-we-don't-show-up-that-means-we're-in-favor-of-it" aspect of the LID vote.  I'm glad that all is not lost and that the little guy still can make a difference!

Do the folks at the Herald read this blog?  They finally reprinted the map I've been begging for!  You cannot see it in the online version of the story, which is a shame, but at least it's there in the actual paper.
It's affecting fewer people than I thought.  It looks some part of the LID is slated for future development.  And, if someone has never known a different way of watering their lawn, they're far less likely to complain, of course.
The next step is the angry citizenry approaching the city council on the 21st.  Yes, of course I'll keep everyone posted.

Saw this on the 12th.  Not happy about it.
At least we have a better idea of the true boundaries.  Now it makes sense that the Polo Club is affected, as it is in within the area mentioned in the article.
Maybe I'm spolied by the Internet and the nifty graphics that appear alongside most news stories.  But, again, shouldn't they have reprinted the official CID boundary list/map?
Another thing that is annoying about it, is that as a Realtor, I know CID is the most difficult to work with of the local irrigation districts.  They're not forthcoming with information, and that's annoying when a transaction is … (0 comments)

We've got us some angry homeowners...
May 10th's Tri-City Herald brought us this story...
And May 11th's story told us how the meeting turned out...
Here's a hint...not well!
The paper discusses the huge assessment assigned to Polo Club property owners (mostly 1 acre+ tracts), but the 10th's article places the eastern boundary of the irrigation district along S. Highland Blvd, which doesn't even come near the Polo Club.  I called CID, and I was told that S. Highlands is indeed the boundary, but some Polo Club homeowners would be affected.  I asked her how and she told me that the Tri-City Herald had published the boundary maps sometime … (0 comments)
