Development will lead to gridlock | Letters
December 9, 2011 · Updated 11:17 AM
In response to Mr. Springsteel’s letter about the probable gridlock from Rose’s development on 305, I couldn’t agree more (“Poulsbo is on its way to road rage,” page A5, Dec. 2 Herald).
It seems to me the city is interested in filling the city treasury more than protecting the environment from clearcutting. So what happens to all wildlife there now? I guess it will be driven out by bulldozers and then squished by oncoming traffic. (Oh, don’t worry, they’re a nuisance anyway.)
People can sell their land to whomever they wish, and the city can give permits to the ones with the capital, but putting this massive development there is just a sad mistake.
The talk lately has been about the blight on Viking Avenue. There, you have abandoned parking lots and empty buildings. Put thedevelopment there!
City Council, just say “no” to Mr. Rose.
