Was land proposal really about affordable housing?

Editor,

What has become of the 1,500-home Wright’s Crossing “affordable housing” proposal? Was it ever really about providing “affordable housing” by a concerned, heart in the right place, out of area developer or developers?

I ask those two questions now that it has been revealed in court papers recently file against our Island County Commissioners that “Wright’s Crossing” is about modestly priced housing with a “percentage offered as affordable housing.”

Pied Piper proposal from the get go one could say. Reality check to start a new year folks, a good beginning indeed.
