Letters from Federal Way and other nearby residents.
Due to the unfortunate shutdown of Federal Way patio furniture maker Dave Hamlin, the Greater Federal Way Kiwanis Club has lost one of its major fund-raisers. Thanks to our city compliance police, we have lost between $2,000 and $3,000 of our funding money we use to support the senior center, scholarships for high school seniors, Relay for Life, Special Olympics softball tournament and many more events.
I think it’s time we take some power away from the people and allow the politicians to make the decisions the people are too cheap to make. Why? Because the average person will not vote for anything if it increases their taxes, even if it benefits them. All they say is, “How much is it going to cost me?” Instead, what people need to start thinking is, “What is it going to cost me in the future if we don’t do something now?”
City Traffic Engineer Richard Perez met with 80 to 100 Twin Lakes residents in the library at Decatur High School to discuss a planned street connection between Soundview Manor, a proposed 28-unit housing development along Dash Point Road, and the established community of Twin Lakes. Mr. Perez’s stated purpose was to discuss the “mitigation” of traffic through Twin Lakes to accommodate the increased flow of vehicles that would occur when the connection is completed. Without a single person there to act in favor of the proposal we, the Twin Lakes residents, were in attendance to tell the City of Federal Way that we do not want a connection made between the development and our long-established community.
