Bring in businesses, not housing, to downtown

There are enough developments happening around the rest of the city.

I am writing about the city’s development of the parking lot behind Arts Alive! I am an avid student for almost two decades at Arts Alive!, the only place for art lessons in south King and north Pierce counties.

I believe that the loss of city parking will also impact the senior center, Valley Cities, etc. A downtown without adequate parking will die.

Our current businesses nearby also deserve to be preserved and are a part of our heritage as a town. I think turning it over to a housing development to make a quick buck shouldn’t be part of the city’s plan. There’s enough housing and development around town.
