Kirkland Places

Mostly crossposts from writing I do in other places. If you can’t stand to miss a single thing I write, it’s all gathered here.

Trouble on Paradise Lake

20161211-img_0657_stdSome years ago, I lived in a residential community east of Woodinville. It’s a typical late 1970s subdivision with houses on acre-lots surrounded by tall trees; the kind of place where deer graze in the yard by day and bears sometimes visit by night. After the Growth Management Act was adopted in 1990, the neighborhood was miles outside the King County Urban Growth Boundary. Zoning was amended to RA-5, effectively freezing pre-GMA development in place with five-acre minimum lots.
