Letter: A 'no' vote won't solve anything

(Continued)

It’s easy to say no — either “Not in my backyard” or “Not my problem.”.But traffic improvements, smart and thoughtful development, and growing tax revenues are our problem. It’s very important that we don’t just let this project survive through the prudent requirements of the charter; we need to let each other — and the state, and developers — know that we have thought about this as a city issue and that we do support well-designed development. Make the effort to go to polls on Saturday, Feb. 8, and vote “Yes” to support the City Council’s vote. Count me in, and get yourself in the count, as well.
