Regarding a recent letter to the editor critical of complaints regarding the new Costco in Lake Stevens: Why can’t buildings be more sustainable? Example, permeable concrete (to continue to protect surrounding waters) and low-level lighting. Must there be 30 gas pumps? Why not 20? Better tree solutions, perhaps a rain garden.
There are options out there that I don’t know about; there are experts that can advise. Of course, it may cost more, but in the long run, must Lake Stevens look like Lynnwood? Can we have the amenities, services with some conscious building? Have you ever noticed in areas where there is some good nature surrounding, more people attend and there is a good peacefulness about the area?
