Eric Heintzinger started this petition to enumclaw city council

A proposal is being made that will turn Enumclaw's largest reservation of Park Land/Open Space, Anderson Riverview Park, into a rehabilitation center for individuals with drug and alcohol addiction.

The proposed location being far from the city and associated community services is the wrong place to house such a venue. Grocery, Law Enforcement, Medical Aid, Public Transportation, and many other basic services are not readily available in the rural area surrounding Anderson Park. Additionally, the property was donated to the city under the condition that it remains a natural space so that we all may experience the old-growth timber and unadulterated riverfront. Allowing the property to be used for any activity other than recreation is in stark contrast to the original intent and contractual obligations.

The local community already suffers from the effects of the Pinnacle Peak parking lot and the predatory bad actors that frequent it in the form of vandalism, burglary, and increased traffic. Adding a rehab center without the proper resources available will only exacerbate the problems and further degrade an otherwise quiet and pleasant place within our community.

If you are interested in preserving places to recreate and escape within our community as it grows, you must help us prevent inappropriate use of our parks and open spaces. Our voices must be heard by the Enumclaw City Council and City Administration through petition, correspondence, public comment, or any other means necessary.

Please consider contributing to the preservation of our community by signing this petition and, if you are inclined, expressing your support of it directly to the Enumclaw City Council. council@ci.enumclaw.wa.us
