Point Wells meeting; article and CliffsNotes® version

Sunday, January 30, 2011

from Diane Hettrick

Noah Haglund, in the Everett Herald online, wrote a terrific story about the recent Point Wells meeting. He reviews the whole issue, noting the concerns of Shoreline and Shoreline residents, includes the developer's plans, and the architect's drawings.

High-rise waterfront planned for Woodway shoreline: Point Wells buildings would be among county's tallest — and home to 4,500

But if you don't have time to read it, here's the CliffsNotes® version:

Developer
  • we will clean up a contaminated site
  • we will build beautiful "green" buildings for people to live and enjoy the view
  • we will provide all services on site, fire, police, shops

City of Shoreline
  • the site is in Snohomish county, which will get all the tax revenue
  • we would have the traffic, the road maintenance, and infrastructure problems

Woodway residents
  • you are going to build 18 story buildings right in front of us

Shoreline residents
  • how will all those people get in and out of Point Wells? will you try to buy up the houses on Richmond Beach Drive and build a six lane road?
  • Richmond Beach Road/185th will be a parking lot and the traffic will spill onto all arterials in Shoreline and Lake Forest Park
