Residents have already shared their vision | Letter

Mr. Roegner’s vision relies on a the expertise of another consultant to tell the citizens of Federal Way what they need. Hopefully, the vision consultant will be better than the re-branding consultant. Many of the citizens have already spoken. They want a safe, pot-free, heroin-free and gang-free city. They want a city that is not overwhelmed with blocks and blocks of multi-family housing. They want a city with a healthy environment and not poisoned by the expansion of air traffic as planned by the Port of Seattle: six to eight additional heavies every hour on the hour by the year 2020. The citizens have spoken, Mr. Roegner. Unfortunately, the mayoral candidates and council leadership are not paying any attention.
