Urban Politics #87: Gypsy Moth Spraying

April 20th, 2000

Councilmember Heidi Wills and I sent the following letter this Tuesday (4/18/00) to Jim Jesernig, Director of the Washington State Department of Agriculture concerning the proposed spraying of pesticides over Ballard and Magnolia in order to stop a possible infestation of the gypsy moth. His Department proposed aerial spraying of Foray 48B, a biological product, to eradicate any Asian gypsy moth presence in a mile-square area of Ballard and the north part of Magnolia. Our letter requests that alternatives to spraying Ballard and Magnolia be used and that the Department of Agriculture work with the community on these alternatives.


Urban Politics #73: Sand Point / Magnuson Park Design

The key findings of this report recommended a “top level task force to review uses under new political leadership” and said that without “cohesive and visionary plans” it would be difficult to find the funding to implement any redevelopment plans. The BRC was charged with identifying that vision.
