In council meetings during December and January the Kenmore city council listened to hours of raucous comments from community members who were outraged and frightened at the prospect of construction of a six-story Plymouth Housing building for homeless clients on Bothell Way.

The project had been in development over several years. Plymouth had secured full funding for the project, and planned to run it, providing supportive services.

Yet, at their meeting on January 22, 2024, the city council scuttled the project.

Three cheers for the Kenmore Council. I wish the Shoreline Council would step up and stop the apartment onslaught which will change the entire Shoreline environment.
