Welcome To Emerald City RC

AMA Charter # 5172

[Update 9/19/14] I got a pretty positive response from the Snohomish County Fire Marshall's office. They are saying that we should be receiving the permit for our Special Event that will be held October 3, 4, and 5. The Site Map and other information has been submitted to the office and it seems that all is well. I paid the fee for the permit and was told we would hear from them in the next few days.
It is sad that no one offered to help with the site map, so it took a while for Sandy (my wife) and I to create what was needed. Thanks to Mark Hanson for providing some drawings to help with dimensions, etc. We used Visio and Google Earth to generate the necessary documentation.
I have no news from the Shockey Planning Group about the Special Use Permit that we need from the SnohomishC Ounty Zoning. Apparently they have asked the county what information is actually required to schedule a hearing for the permit. They say it will be spring 2015 before we get the permit! Mark and I have indicated to them that we are not happy with their efforts. A document sent by them from the county delineates the info that they require in great detail (site map - we now have one!!!, 20 copies of one document 8.5x11, 25 copies of another 11x17, and so on). It would seem to us that these should have already been done and submitted. The field has been shut down since July 18th!
Speaking of which - No one is to fly on our site until the permits are received that allow us to do this! If you unthinkingly do this and the county gets wind of this transgression, we could permanently lose our flying rights until a HUGE court battle is completed. DO NOT FLY AT OUR FIELD Offenders will be permanently out of the club and legal action will have to be pursued to protect the club and our members!
I'll update the website with more info next week. Ron

[Update 8/30/14]
I have had a few conversations with the Snohomish County Fire Marshall's Office. This is the area of the county that we are working with to have our Special Event Permit for the weekend of October 3, 4 and 5th. We are in the books for our application and are supplying the requested information to help process the application. So far, we have not run into any big road blocks. We have been informaed that we do not need any additional insurance for our event! Yea! After the Labor Day holiday I'll have some more information.
On the Special Use Permit with the Snohomish County Zoning Office, as far as I know (based on discussions with county officials) no date has been set to review of our application and the application has yet to be submitted! I was told by our legal council that we were in the queue of 100's of applications and this process takes time. We are in the process of getting this difference in stories resolved. We are either in the queue or not... If we are not in the queue - we need to be. If we are in the queue, we should have a meeting date set with the county to review the application. Kind of frustrating! More info next week.

[Info as of 8/22/14]
Hi fellow flyers and friends.
First, some good news. Our website name has been reserved for the next two years. Yes, we plan to keep the club going and that's good news.
Even better news, Mark Hanson and I just returned from a visit to the Snohomish County offices. We began a submission process for a Special Event, a Fun Fly weekend. We are proposing to have the event at our club field October 3. 4 and 5th. You can read more of the details in this email that was sent out.
Even more current news --> we might not even need the permit for this special event. I'll find out more on Monday 8/25.
[Info from 8/20/14]
I did send out an email (8-20-14) documenting the status of our flying field special use permit. You can view the PDF here.
Also, just for documentation purposes, the pre-application info produced by our legal representative is here

[Original bad news...}
As of Friday, July 18th, the field was CLOSED to flying activities by the Snohomish county zoning commission.
The flying activities are still not allowed at this time.
I am hoping to have a club meeting at our club field at 4:30 PM on Saturday, September 13th. With any luck, Camie Anderson or one of the Shockey Planning Group folks will be available to answer your questions directly!
I'm ready to get back to the flying activities again, but the prognosis I have been receiving involves a long undocumented process involving a delay of several months.
Feel free to contact me anytime - best way is via my work phone (425) 788-6045, but I will make an effort to be better at responding to the many, many emails I receive daily!
