A question and answer with Lakewood City Manager Andrew Neiditz, concerning the controversial Camp Murray gate relocation issue, will be the featured presentation at the meeting of the Tillicum Woodbrook Neighborhood Association (TWNA) Thursday, October 7, 2010, 6:30 p.m. at the Tillicum Community Center, 14916 Washington Ave. SW. Following are some links to recent developments.
“City officials aren’t averse to a new gate. They’re just not convinced that the location Camp Murray officials wanted was the best one or that the mitigations they proposed to alleviate impacts on Tillicum residents were sufficient.
“Right now, tempers are frayed on the subject. After everyone cools off, the subject should be resurrected – this time with plenty of input up front from the people who would be most affected: the residents of Tillicum.”
The above is an excerpt – the bottom-line – in the editorial in today’s TNT.
