The grassroots effort to defeat Sun Communities’ proposed “47 Degrees North” development is growing, and in August 2021 the Washington State non-profit corporation Kittitas County Unincorporated Area Council (KCUAC) was formed. KCUAC is the “Point of the Spear” to organize opposition and coordinate public participation in the complex process of stopping this community-killing development. Everyone in Cle Elum and Upper County can be a part of this movement – and we have to make our voices heard!
Ultimately, the Cle Elum City Council will decide the fate of 47 Degrees North. The City received hundreds of public comment in late summer of 2021, and in November Sun Communities sent the City a letter claiming more engagement would be forthcoming. The threat of this project is not over and every citizen should be involved in stopping it. Donate, volunteer, and help save the community you know and love.
