Selfish to think Black Diamond can stay small amid general city growth | Letter to the Editor

OK, which other small town in King County would you make all the people move to as the population grows? Don't you think they feel the same way? Of course they do.

OK, which other small town in King County would you make all the people move to as the population grows? Don’t you think they feel the same way? Of course they do.

The Growth Management Act ensures that we all take our fair share over the years as the counties population grows. Just because we like our small town does not mean we can live in a dream world and ignore population growth and higher taxes.

I for one, am glad to have a plan in place for what that needs to look like as it happens. To believe that we can actually be selfish enough to keep our town small and make everyone else deal with growth is short term thinking and not sustainable.
