Dear members of our City Council,
It has recently been brought to our attention that there is a proposal on the table to increase building heights on the Edmonds waterfront. This information has been received with disappointment. My wife and I have lived in Edmonds for over 20 years now. We chose Edmonds as our home because of the family-friendly environment and largely due to the fact that the City of Edmonds has been able to maintain a small town feel in spite of the greed that surrounds us in neighboring cities.
Many people love Edmonds for that same reason. Increasing building height takes that away, opens the door for more greed and more businesses to take advantage of this same allowance. To put it simply, if building heights increase it no longer feels like “An Edmonds Kind of Day.” We may as well be in Seattle.
We strongly disagree with this proposal and the fact that this proposal has been discreetly hidden from the public. We ask that you take our feedback to heart and reconsider your plan.
Dr. and Mrs. James D Haberman, Jr.
