Federal Way land owner right to clear property

Regarding the underbrush removed at the Weyerhaeuser site, it is far-fetched to call it “environmental rape” as one person did in a letter to the editor. The city does not own the site nor do the two women who responded. Northwest liberal environmentalists love to tell private landowners what to do with their property. The owner of the property went through the proper channels with the city. If our National Park Service would maintain proper thinning and clearing of underbrush in the national forests, we would have fewer wildfires. Sounds like the land owner is being proactive. Last item: If the city would enforce the existing vagrancy and laws forbidding camping on public land, the homeless would not be here in our city making it a Seattle clone.
