The Shoreline open house on Point Wells, sponsored by the developer to obtain feedback from the community, is scheduled for Thursday, September 23 at the Shoreline Conference Center, 18560 1st Ave NE, Shoreline 98155, in the large Shoreline Room at the north end of the building.

It is an Open House format, from 5 pm to 7:30 pm, although BSRE Point Wells LP has arranged for its architect, Peter Busby from Chicago-based firm Perkins+Will, to give short presentations during the September 23 meeting.

Residents of Richmond Beach have many issues with the proposed development, with the main issue being that the only access to the site, which could have as many as 3,000 condo units, is through a very narrow road which leads only to Richmond Beach Road and eventually to the intersection at N 185th and Aurora. 

It is uncertain who would have the responsibility to provide fire and aid services. Even though the only road is through Shoreline, the site is in Snohomish County.

The developers, who are known for their "green" buildings, have explored many options for potential surface transportation, but none are currently in existence or in planning.
