Save Weyerhaeuser Campus appeal begins June 20

These are major decisions that will affect our community and region for years to come.

This week, you can witness the next big step in the community’s effort to see responsible development on the former Weyerhaeuser campus. On June 20, 21 and 26 at Federal Way City Hall, the city’s hearing examiner will hear legal arguments in the appeal by Save Weyerhaeuser Campus (

Should traffic, environmental, historic and other impacts of all three Industrial Realty Group warehouse/industrial projects be reviewed together? SWC’s legal team and numerous experts believe the answer is yes, and they are not alone in thinking so. The SWC witness list includes the Washington State Department of Transportation. These three projects could bring up to 800 semi-truck trips each day, as well as thousands of car trips. WSDOT is concerned about the cumulative impacts to its highway system, which we all know is already clogged at key times of the day. Come and listen for part or all of the hearing, which starts at 10 a.m. each day. These are major decisions that will affect our community and region for years to come.
