Save Our Sequim

November 1, 2020:
Your Board has not given up the fight to Save Our Sequim and neither should you. It is the hired staff of the City of Sequim and this Developer who have conspired to place a MAT where the majority of Sequim's citizens do not wish it to be. We have been denied a voice in the future of our city and that is what we are fighting for--a say in the future of OUR city. SOS will be fighting this battle in LUPA (Land Use Petition Act) Court where a judge will decide if Sequim's 30,000 citizens have "standing" or will it only be a wealthy and powerful Developer?

We cannot fight without funds to pay our legal team. Our lawyer is a specialist in land use law and extremely competent. As of October 31, 2020 our Legal Fund balance is $19,523. We need a minimum of $50,000 or more to get us thru the next few months. Every penny donated goes to the legal fund--I attest to that.

WE NEED YOUR DONATIONS!
This is NOT a "Done Deal!"
Thank you everyone for your generous contributions to date!

Sincerely,
Gayle Baker
Treasurer S.O.S.

Sequim is a small town of 7,108 people on the north shore of Washington State’s Olympic Peninsula. As a quiet retirement community with a median age 49% above the WA state average, Sequim is home to the world-famous annual Lavender Festival and a thriving tourism industry. Sequim is also a rural farming community with deep pioneer roots.
The Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe, Olympic Medical Center and Jefferson Healthcare (the Developers), in collaboration with city, county, state, and congressional leaders have made plans to bring a REGIONAL scale, multi-phased opioid addiction rehab and mental health inpatient facility to tiny Sequim. There is currently excess treatment capacity available within twelve miles of Sequim. There is no current data to confirm additional need for this facility.
Sequim does not have the necessary supportive services for a 17,000 square foot REGIONAL opioid addiction treatment facility, ultimately expanding to a 25,000 square foot inpatient psychological hospital and detox facility. The expected clientele would expand Sequim’s current population by 5%, without adequate housing and social support networks available to serve them. This population is known to rely heavily on social services and Sequim is ill-equipped to accommodate these needs.
Please help us to push back against the wealthy and powerful Developer who seeks to bring this facility to Sequim for financial gain. That effort should be redirected to improving programs already in place within the Region. For statistics, data, FAQs, research and current information, please visit: www.SaveOurSequim.org
