City survey shows Islanders support parks | Letter

  • Apr 28, 2016 at 1:00PM

For decades, Islanders have demonstrated via the ballot box and other means that parks are valuable assets to the overall well-being of the Island.

Parks petition seeks to undermine MICA creation | Letter

  • Apr 28, 2016 at 9:00AM

As Mercer Island residents, we are dismayed by the "Protect our Parks" petition. We support our parks and the diverse activities our Island provides. Our vision of the Island is one of diversity. We love the Saturday soccer and the flag-ridden streets on July Fourth, the Rotary Run and our Mercer Island parade. The petition pursues a course to limit this community vision and to stifle the diverse activity our parks provide. It lacks the belief that we will defend our Island's rich natural parks.

Community should have chance to vote on MICA | Letter

  • Apr 22, 2016 at 9:00AM

I've been watching and reading the debate on the MICA proposal. I still have a couple of questions and concerns, such as how did MICA/YTN get the go-ahead versus other deserving nonprofits? We could have an excellent disability center that would serve a deserving multi-generational community who historically is underserved. Were other nonprofits allowed to make a proposal or was this just the City Council's pocket decision?
