Bothell drops ball on sale of Wayne Golf Course | Letter
The need for open-space, parks, recreation, trails, etc. has virtually taken a back-seat to over development. Most parks are postage-stamp size in the city of Bothell, with little amenities.
Now we hear that Bothell had the right of first refusal on the sale of the back nine of the Wayne Golf Course. It's clear that Bothell elected to go for the developer money rather then give the citizens an open-space that will never be duplicated again.
The traffic impact alone on 100th Avenue, Waynita Way and 96th Avenue is overwhelming. Perhaps even a larger bridge is needed over the Sammammish River. But the loss of this green space in the city is insane.
How can the Bothell citizens allow this lack of oversight by our elected officials?
Robert Tadlock, Bothell
