Taking it to the streets - “No Urban Center at Point Wells”

Thursday, July 21, 2011

Starting this Sunday, July 24, you will likely start seeing some new signs out and about on the streets of Richmond Beach.

The signs, which read “No Urban Center at Point Wells”, are intended to alert the developer and Snohomish County that residents will NOT accept an Urban Center at Point Wells.

Save Richmond Beach, the citizens' organization which has been steadily lobbying against a proposed development at Point Wells which would eventually house 3,000 new Snohomish County residents at the end of a dead-end Shoreline street, has started a public sign campaign.

Volunteers will begin placing the signs along easements on city streets in Richmond Beach this Sunday.
If there is a sign in the easement in front of your residence and you just don't like it, we absolutely respect your wishes. Please alert us by email info@saverichmondbeach.org and let us know you would like us to remove the sign. Each sign has a "name" written in the corner, so please indicate which sign you would like us to retrieve.

Signs are up for adoption. For $10 a sign, say the organizers, you can help defray the costs of the campaign.

Organizers hope to have the streets full of signs for the August visit of Shraga Biran, the Israeli developer who is the majority owner of the development company which owns Point Wells.


Hoping Shraga Biran Listens,  July 21, 2011 at 9:52 AM  

My family lives in the Richmond Beach area.
We moved here because it is a wonderful neighborhood with a "small town" feel.

We are hopeful that when Shraga Biran visits our neighborhood he will see what an increase of 10,000-15,000 car trips per day will look like in this small community.

Can you imagine what the intersection that leads down to Richmond Beach will look like with TEN THOUSAND MORE CARS going through it?

Right now kids walk to the Little Store and Walk to the Library. They walk to the beach and ride bikes all over the place.

By building this behemoth structure at "URBAN CENTER" allowances, they will turn a family friendly, walking community into a thoroughfare.

The builder touts his intentions as
How green is that?

Shraga Biran says that if the people don't want it, it won't be built.

Well, hopefully he will see that WE DON'T WANT IT.

Something smaller..ok...
But, 3500+ condos?
Tallest building between Seattle and Vancouver, BC?
10K-15K extra car trips PER DAY?

Come on...
That's a joke, right?
