Op-Ed: A Statement of Expectations Regarding Deliberations and Decisions on Point Wells

Wednesday, September 10, 2014


Within the next few months, there will no shortage of hot topics cooking in the cauldron of Point Wells. Issues in the mix include the Transportation Corridor Study (TCS), Second Access Road Requirements, Tolling, and Environmental Impact Statement.

In anticipation of these deliberations, Richmond Beach Advocates (RBA) and Save Richmond Beach (SRB) developed the following Statement of Expectations regarding deliberations and decisions on Pont Wells.

We expect the City of Shoreline to:

· Make policy and administrative decisions consistent with their declared priority to reduce the scale and traffic impact of Point Wells.

· Subject every important topic to a rigorous examination that considers all alternatives to the proposed course of action, including review by third-party experts and by the Shoreline community.

· Accord all third-party reviewers enough time to provide quality input that will inform the City’s deliberations.

· Work with third-party experts and the Shoreline community to make revisions through an iterative process until the City concludes that all concerns have been adequately addressed.

· Make available on a timely basis all public records on the topic being considered by the City of Shoreline.

What you can expect from Richmond Beach Advocates and Save Richmond Beach

· Be steadfast in our pursuit to maintain the quality of life and character of the greater Richmond Beach community.

· Remain steadfast in our pursuit to reduce the scale and associated traffic impact of the Point Wells development.

· Hold the City staff and City Council accountable to the expectations stated above.

· Provide leadership in submitting each topic we identify to a thorough, rigorous examination. Such examination may include review by third-party experts and input from the Shoreline community.

· Periodically inform the community on important timelines and decisions.

Applying these expectations to the topics we mentioned above, SRB and RBCA look forward to working with the City of Shoreline to find solutions that advance our mutual goal to reduce the scale and traffic impacts at Point Wells.
