We need your help! The Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) is attempting to condemn our beloved Montlake Market (Hop-in) and the 76 gas station. They will be demolished to make way for the 520 highway expansion. WSDOT’s actions have been marked by a lack of transparency, poor community engagement, and inadequate consideration to environments impacts.
The Montlake Community Club has hired an environmental attorney to fight this unjust action who has successfully convinced the court to allow us to present testimony at a court hearing later this month. Unfortunately, this is very expensive and our legal costs are adding up quickly.
We urgently need your financial support to help pay our lawyers and continue the fight. Can you give $25, $100, or even $1,000? Please consider giving more if you are able. Your donations are tax deductible. You can make a donation in one of these ways:
1. Use the big black Donate button on the right to use Paypal
