Proposed youth sports complex in Glenrose area draws neighborhood ire

Nicholas DeshaisMay 15, 2019

A coalition of Glenrose residents has threatened legal action to stop the development of a $2.2 million youth sports complex on 20 acres of rural land southeast of Spokane they say will “forever alter the Glenrose neighborhood.”

The Glenrose Association sent a letter last week to the Spokane Youth Sports Association citing numerous permitting and legal hurdles for the project and urged the SYSA to “address the serious concerns of the neighborhood.”

“You can avoid the expense, delay and uncertainty of permit and legal battles and retain control of the outcomes,” states the letter, written by local lawyer Rick Eichstaedt for the Seattle-based environmental law firm Bricklin & Newman. “You have little to lose and much to gain by seeking a mutually acceptable solution with your would-be neighbors.”
