Trillium Development Update

On April 3rd, DR Horton filed an appeal of Judge Sutton's ruling upholding the denial of the Trillium Master Plan. DR Horton is pursuing the rezone process as well as continuing litigation in hopes they will gain approval to proceed with their previous Master Plan Application.

District II of the Court of Appeals in Tacoma will be reviewing the record, considering further written briefs and oral argument from the parties to the litigation: Horton, the City of Olympia, and Olympia Safe Streets.

The City of Olympia Planning Commission hearing for the proposed Trillium development will be June 18th, 6:30 p.m., at Olympia City Hall. They will be making a recommendation to the city council on rezoning the Trillium property. This will be an amendment to the Comprehensive Plan.

Although there are many issues relating to the area, a petition to have the Trillium property placed in to the Olympia park system is one idea. To sign the petition, go to: www.gopetition.com/petitions/city-of-olympia-conserve-nature-trails-and-forest-next.html#sign
