Letter | Where is the opposition to Parkplace?

By Margaret Bull

Last year Kirkland City Council meetings were jammed packed with people objecting to the Parkplace Developer's plans to build 8 story buildings in Kirkland. Where have all those people gone? You can still be involved in shaping the development of Parkplace. Monday night the Design Review Board meets to discuss what building C will look like. Once or twice a month they hold meetings to look over the plans and give suggestions. With citizen imput the seven people on the Design Review Board might be able to make better decisions about many of the visual and practical aspects on this huge building complex that will forever change the 'look' of Kirkland. Any citizen can review the plans posted on the city website and send in comments or speak for three minutes at a meeting. What you have to say may make a big difference.
