Mayor Pro Tem Stephen Buxbaum and Council Members Steven Langer, Jeanine Roe and Karen Rogers supported the successful motion to deny the MPA. Mayor Doug Mah and Councilmember Craig Ottavelli voted against the motion to deny the MPA, after earlier failing to receive any additional votes for Ottavelli’s motion to approve the MPA. (Councilmember Rhenda Strub was absent.)
We are currently trying to clarify whether the Hearing Examiner’s decision on the preliminary plat will soon be released. That decision would address issues such as stormwater runoff, drinking water, traffic and environmental impacts.
We appreciate the leadership the Mr. Buxbaum, Mr. Langer, Ms. Roe and Ms. Rogers demonstrated and their recognition that they — not developers, or the school or transit districts — are responsible to ensure the goals and requirements of Olympia’s comprehensive plan are maintained and implemented. If you’re similarly appreciative and would like to thank them, their email addresses are:
Mayor Mah, Councilmember Ottavelli, and Councilmember Strub may be contacted at:
