Most people would choose not to be shoe-horned into a city that is forced to cram more and more people into a smaller space by “building up not out,” a favorite term used by county dwellers that “sprawl” in the county at densities of one house per five acres.
Talk about sprawl! These county dwellers are the ones you hear decrying urban sprawl, loss of forest and agricultural land, erosion and contaminated run-off into Puget Sound and Swan Lake.
The truth is that they don’t want the rest of us getting too close to their precious homes in the woods. I believe this is their true motivation and the laundry list of environmental concerns makes a good battering ram for forcing the rest of us into a sardine can of a city.
If you look at where these people live I’ll bet you find them in McMansions sprawled throughout the most scenic sites in the county. That’s why they don’t want us getting near them. What is the difference between a developer and an environmentalist? The developer wants to build a house in the woods and the environmentalist already has a house in the woods.
Don’t let these elitists fence you in so only they enjoy what the rest of us yearn for but can’t afford.
Don’t vote for Angie Homola and her ilk.
