LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Former Seattle mayor’s new home isn’t so nice

  • Mar 29, 2014 at 8:00AM

Editor, It took me awhile to finally get up the nerve to drive down to the Langley dock/marina and view what Paul Schell is building. What a monstrosity, to say the least. It has spoiled the whole terrain of that beautiful lagoon and beach. How can he or the city planner justify or approve this type of structure? Can anyone explain the reason it took two years for my neighbor to get questions answered and permits (which were all required by the city) before they could put in a parking strip for their business (mandatory request by the city)? What does Paul Schell have that so many of our other citizens don’t in obtaining architectural design approval, permits, etc. so quickly? Money?

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Lawmakers droned on about accomplishments

  • Mar 30, 2014 at 8:00AM

Editor, We attended the Town Hall meeting of our three Republican state legislators in Langley last week on Thursday. It was a waste of our time.
