Hi Sue,

Mary’s Place, What Does Compromise Look Like?

Let’s set aside the legality and the other contentious issues and get to the crux of the matter. You say:

“Neighbors near Mary’s Place respect the work of Mary’s Place and welcome them and the children and families they serve into the neighborhood. Neighbors are eager to continue to donate time and resources and have testified in support of Mary’s Place. Neighbors do not support Burien Hill LLC’s, amendment because it is inconsistent with the designation criteria of the Burien Comprehensive Plan and its land use map.”

Let’s assume the following:

  1. Mary’s Place does develop the parcel
  2. The Shorewood neighbors work with Mary’s Place and the city of Burien for a win-win scenario.

In your ideal world (not Mary Place’s), what does this development look like? What does the community want, what does compromise look like?

Regards,
– David Feinberg
