    On March 11, 2013 the City of Burien issued the first permit for construction on the Emerald Pointe on the Sound Project.

    This permit is for the initial clearing of the site. It includes the removal of 78 significant trees, while protecting and preserving only 8 (eight!) significant trees on this 9.8 acre site. They can also remove smaller trees and brush as needed. No other permits (fire, sewer, stormwater, etc.) have been applied for or approved at this time, but the applicant (Westmark) has plans to clear the site regardless. Once the site is cleared there is no guarantee that they will be able to meet the conditions of additional permits, but the damage to the area, the slope and Seahurst Park will be irreversible.

    There will be a meeting on May 7th at 7:00 pm at the Sound Vista Condominiums Cabana (12th Ave SW & 132nd Lane SW) to discuss the status of the Westmark project and Neighbors of Seahurst Park’s Land Use Petition fighting to prevent the potential damage this project poses to Seahurst Park.
