Save Black Diamond is a network of volunteers and supporters working to protect Black Diamond, WA, and the surrounding areas from irresponsible land development. Irresponsible development costs us all. In tangible ways, we pay for utilities, roads, schools, and any “improvement” that will later be necessary because the developer did not pay up front.
Perhaps more importantly, we lose beautiful wilderness, peace and quiet, local businesses, our voice in our local government, and our historic charm. We are opposed to the massive development proposed by the Yarrow Bay Corporation.
The developer lobbied to get a long-term “entitlement” to build over 6,000 housing units and commercial development with space equivalent to ten Wal-Marts.
We work to monitor and hold accountable the City of Black Diamond and other government entities to protect our rights from significant challenges this development will bring to our future.
