Red Mill Annexation threatens proposed City of Fairwood

The City of Renton has authorized circulation of a 60% annexation petition that targets the commercial core of the proposed City of Fairwood. (See map)

  • The petition is not to registered voters.

  • The petition seeks signatures of 60% of the assessed value from the land owners within the annexation area.

  • The petition method of annexation is not one-person-one-vote, but instead weighs each signature by the assessed value of the property. As few as eight signatures, mostly from out of the Fairwood area, could be sufficient for this petition.

If the annexation succeeds, the matter of whether the proposed City of Fairwood should be established will have been decided (in the negative), without a vote of the people of Fairwood.

Please understand that this annexation is intended to foreclose the possibility of a City of Fairwood. This annexation could deny voters of the entire Fairwood area the opportunity to vote on the incorporation of the proposed City. The incorporation process is underway and it is proceeding on a schedule which would result in a public vote in late 2008 or early 2009.

We need your help in preventing a few commercial property owners from depriving voters from having a say in how we wish to be governed, at the local level. Continued... For the full story read Red Mill Annexation threatens proposed City of Fairwood - Fairwood Municipal Initiative
