Reasons to oppose the sale



  • During the Covid stay at home order, we are denied meaningful, face-to-face discourse
  • City's stated committment to protect urban forest
  • Environmentally protected area already suffering from landslides
  • Sink Holes in Wood Creek have already destroyed neighbors homes
  • Removal of forest will increase landslide risk
  • Critical wildlife habitat & public green space should be protected and preserved
  • Wood Creek is the main source of water for Everett's Marshland Tidal Wetland Restoration Project
  • Preserving the riparian forest will improve water quality
  • Keeping the Wood Creek forested corridor intact will improve wild life
  • The city has not taken any serious study of existing landslide risks
  • Wood Creek is an important historical landmark- it was Everett's original water source
  • Access to Valley View is already challenged with one bridge

Stewards of Wood Creek Everett Mission

To protect and preserve the Wood Creek forest for future generations through conservation and stewardship.

Footer Logo The City of Everett has proposed the sale of about 92.5 acres of undeveloped green belt property. Wood Creek lies in the valley between the Valley View and Eastmont neighborhoods. Wood Creek was the main source of drinking water for the city of Everett between 1898 and 1916, until the Sultan River water project was completed. The land and the creek is a critical habitat for a variety of animals and wildlife. Additionally, the land is unstable and many parts of the land are critically sloped. This group is for anyone opposing this proposal and for trying to preserve this critical land.
