With vaporous oversight and no democratic conversation with this neighborhood, Snohomish County's Parks & Recreation Department wanted their master plan approved by the end of July 2012. Due to a loud outcry from residents of this area, their plan was not fast-tracked.
We, the neighbors of Wellington Hills, are raising our voices in order to slow down this unchecked urban development – in a rurally zoned area. Our goal is for a thoughtfully developed park in harmony with the neighborhood.

On May 8, 2012, Snohomish County's Parks & Recreation Department surprised the residents living near the Wellington Hills Golf Course with the news they were going to build a regional sports complex on the golf course location.
Included in this 100 acre sports complex would be four artificial turf fields with stadium lights, public announcement (PA) system and seating... plus three additional grass sports fields. The sports fields would sit next to a 500+ car parking lot and there would be access to a parking lot for an additional 250+ cars.
Their master plan also includes a 60,000 sq. ft. indoor mountain bike building, 50,000 sq. ft. indoor soccer/activities building and a dog park.
Currently, 240th St SE is the local access for the Wellington area to Route 9 and Highway 522. Their plan calls for 240th St SE to be heavily modified for access to the sports complex. These expensive modifications include a traffic circle (roundabout), overheard footbridge, sidewalks, speed bumps and streetlights.
