The SLA, along with the Saratoga Lake Protection and Improvement District and the towns of Saratoga and Stillwater, successfully fought the city in 2006, when a Supreme Court decision found the city did not consider the proposal's impact on the lake's watershed.
Koss said this victory factored into the SLA's decision to appeal.
"It would be one thing if it were a clean sweep throughout," she said. "It's not like we had a loss in the trial courts and a loss in the appellate."
Koss also said an appeal would make financial sense at this point. She estimated the SLA has spent over $100,000 in legal fees opposing the city's push for Saratoga Lake.""
