Am I the only one who is disgusted with the lack of progress regarding the Bothell Main Street enhancement?
This ill-planned and poorly executed project has gone on forever with no end in sight. Meanwhile, businesses suffer and we drive over streets (particularly 102nd Avenue Northeast and Main Street) that aren’t fit for use, damaging our vehicles and forcing us to navigate under hazardous conditions.
I’ve contacted the city more than once and nothing changes. I’m told that I’m the only one who has complained. Potholes are minimally addressed with cheap filler and surfaces of the streets keep being torn up and deteriorating. This kind of job performance by city officials would NEVER be tolerated by the folks in Mill Creek.
My questions are: Why are the residents of Bothell content with this kind of incompetence and poor quality of roads? What does this say about the people who live in our town? All that seems to matter is what our Bothell public relations officials have been known to promote about our community: Packed in high-cost neighborhoods (leading to increasing traffic congestion) and a growing number of venues to buy and enjoy booze and weed. Bothell has gone to pot in more ways than one thanks to public apathy and failed leadership. I guess that’s what happens when substance use (and unrecognized abuse) become the source of tax revenue and town popularity and pride.
