Letter to the Editor: Lorri Bodi can offer better solutions

Saturday, October 12, 2019

To the Editor:

If you have been following the events in LFP over how the Town Center will be developed then you are aware of the frustrations those events have caused citizens. What started out looking like an opportunity for citizens to participate in suggesting what features were desirable has resulted in a moratorium that puts the whole project on hold for six months.

It became apparent to citizens that the Council was promoting a range up to 1,500 dwellings to be built in Town Center, plus a huge 300 stall garage to service the numbers of commuters using Sound Transit’s buses; not to mention they spent $963,000 with consultants developing their plan and selling it to citizens at several public events. Amidst all the furor created with their actions, the Council cancelled 50% of their public meetings.

We need to use our voting privilege next month to put a new voice on the Council. Lorri Bodi can offer better solutions for how to move forward with not only Town Center but with other Citizen priorities; not just Council priorities. Lorri Bodi has the skills, experience and leadership to put our Council back on track. Lorri is not going to waste your tax dollars listening to consultants when there are hundreds of citizens to listen to with constructive ideas. Lorri shares our worries about all the increased density and horrible traffic LFP is threatened by and has no interest in increasing the problems. Lorri has no conflict of interest with developers or organizations that are promoting growth throughout our region as she understands that growth has to have a balance with the environment, not replace it with intrusive development.

The Council has handed the Town Center project review over to the Planning Commission which provides citizens an excellent opportunity to attend their meetings and offer comment.
