Letter to the Editor: City officials should listen to residents' concerns on future housing plans


Last updated 3/3/2021 at 2:12pm

Editor's note: The following letter was addressed to Mukilteo Planning and Community Development staff Dave Osaki and Lauren Balisky.

I disagree that changing the building codes to increase density in Mukilteo and add more housing projects does not do anything to Mukilteo. It will completely change many things and you know that. That is crazy to say the opposite, what is that for? Why is this agenda to completely change Mukilteo so important to you, when most of Mukilteo does not want Mukilteo changed? Why do you think that it is perfectly ethical to utterly change Mukilteo when the people who live here do not, largely want that?

You two are so talented and capable, but why force these personal wishes upon us, rather than work for the common good and common desires of the residents of Mukilteo? Why not enjoy meeting the desires of the people who live here, rather than try to cause us what we think – to us are future problems we do not want?

Please consider postponing your changes, as you kindly hear the voices of the people who are speaking out about this in opposition.

Many people disagree with the findings of the study group and consultancy completely and with your viewpoints on these matters. Please be reasonable and do not force your personal preferences on Mukilteo, against the wishes of the people and against strong opposition.

Thank you for your good efforts to try to better Mukilteo. I understand and agree that you both do genuinely mean well and think you are doing great good. I get that. Along with your good intent, please consider and keep in mind the wish of the residents here over the wishes of other entities. Let the people here have a larger say and let the people here determine what happens in our city, not other entities dictate that to us in opposition to what we want. Thank you for working on this and I hope to see you slow this process down to make sure that you are not going against what the majority of Mukilteo wants.

Thanks so much for your renewed consideration.

Lisa McBroom
