The Lake Roesiger store, and the water body for which it is named, are located maybe 10 to 12 miles east of Everett, about due east of where Highway 2 leaves the city and heads for the mountains, but several miles north of the twisting highway itself. This is a mountain area, woodsy, with scattered rural cabins and the like for weekenders and some who want to spend more time there. Quiet and, considering the distance from the Seattle-Everett area, a little remote; the roads there are not major roads.
So the area is in for a shock, if developer plans carry through: Plans call for building 6,000 homes there – what could develop into an incorporated city of maybe 20,000 people.
