To the Edmonds City Council,
I would like to echo the sentiments of the citizens who spoke in opposition to the city’s involvement in the Landmark Project.
For the city to consider speculative property development during a period of deficit spending could prove further lack of stewardship of taxpayers’ funds.
Our city is not in the best shape – our roads need repairs, the municipal park is over budget and the water treatment plant needs attention. These are just a few reasons why the city should leave the business of developing to those who are in that business.
If the members of the council want to become developers, I encourage them to do it as private citizens and stick to the business of managing our local government when using the taxpayer’s money.
