Winlock has seen a lot of growth, but the biggest concern for many residents is the annexation of the Urban Growth Area (UGA) into the Winlock city limits. This week, signs stating "NO Annexation'' have been placed in the Winlock UGA and it's the work of one lady, Mrs. Kathy Chastain. She lives in the UGA and has already seen the impact to her property due to the timber being removed. Kathy's property has "standing water," for the first time in 36 years. She is just one of many who will see changes if the UGA is annexed.
Kathy has been busy fighting the annexation since she heard that the City of Winlock has applied to annex the UGA. The interesting part is the company that has been pushing the annexation is now on hold due to not enough water hookups, but the annexation is still moving forward. The City of Winlock has determined, through the developers mainly, that they have the required votes to annex in the UGA. The vote is based on value and not the number of residents or even if they live here. It's not about the citizens, it's about the power of corporate America to take over small communities.
