The “lessons of consequence” from the silence of Tahoma Terra owners is they will have a water treatment plant in their neighborhoods – the maintenance truck traffic, noise, smells, etc.
Of course, the Conditional Use Permit can only go into effect if the City of Yelm’s water allocation is upheld, however a citizen’s appeal has that in limbo.
Bottom line, the city needs a water allocation to operate a water treatment facility.
