Save Richmond Beach and Woodway joining forces

Sunday, November 21, 2010

On Wednesday, December 8, from 6:30 to 8 pm at Swannie's on the Alley (formerly The Grillhouse, next to Spin Alley) 1430 NW Richmond Beach Road, Save Richmond Beach and the Town of Woodway are holding a joint community meeting to plan a coordinated message from both communities regarding the proposed development at Point Wells.

Caycee Holt of Save Richmond Beach and Carla Nichols, Mayor of Woodway, as well as other representatives from the area will be present to share information about anticipated impacts on the communities and how "a coordinated message can be delivered regarding smart, attractive, and appropriately scaled development along the waterfront of Point Wells."

"Based on proposed plans neither Snohomish County nor the developer intends to build new roads. Their plan is to route all this new traffic through existing roads in Richmond Beach, Innis Arden, and Woodway. We will be left with major traffic, increased public safety risks and public service impacts while Snohomish County and Blue Square Real Estate reap the tax benefits and profits."

Swannie's will provide dinner specials and a large meeting room.

Save Richmond Beach is a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving our neighborhoods through responsible and sustainable planning.

I hope our city council attends this event and listens to the people that put them in office. This is the biggest issue that has ever faced Shoreline and it largely being swept aside. The entire city will feel the impact of this development and the quality of life in Shoreline will suffer. Let's all show up on the 8th and have our voices heard.

This Point Wells developer is attempting to force a square peg into a round hole. The associated traffic with this development will be horrific and paralyzing with only one (2) lane outlet through Richmond Beach. This 'urban center' is miles from any major state route. There is no concrete plan that can reasonably be executed for ferry service or for commuter train service. If this development is not substantially restricted or stopped, the end result will be transportationally strangling, environmentally degrading, and fiscally burdeonsome on the residents of the entire area of both Shoreline and Woodway.
