After reading about the proposed building plans for the old Kmart property I have to say No! (“Affordable housing projects could bring 700 units to Everett,” The Herald, April 11)
Please, no more apartment complexes. Here’s a thought: Ask the citizens what they want. Our beautiful city and surrounding rural areas have been ripped out and replaced by these complexes. Density housing is already here. Pretty art pieces and fancy modern looks to the buildings do not solve the problem.
Park use is a problem. In the summer parking is impossible as is attending the nice community events. Parking downtown is hard to find, and by the way, how come there are so few handicapped spots in the city? The hospital is crowded. Schools are crowded. Crime comes with growth and crime we got!
I did not vote to increase the city with out-of-control building. I asked for sane growth control. Sound Transit is years away from being a reality so why do we have to compensate by having more growth now. Being forced to pay for it is enough. Maybe the folks that voted for it could be singled out so they could pay it and leave the rest of us alone.
I say no to more complex building. Seriously more shopping is needed in that area.
