Group of Richmond Beach, WA Neighbors Opposes Low-Income Housing Project Near Church – Shoreline-Lake Forest Park, WA Patch

A group calling itself the Richmond Beach Congregation Church Neighbors drafted this letter in opposition to a low-income housing project proposed on church property. 

At the January 2012 Richmond Beach Community Association meeting, the Richmond Beach Congregational Church board presented its plan to build a 24-unit low-income apartment complex on the north end of its property with access onto 15th Avenue NW. In response, church neighbors who will be most directly impacted by the project – primarily residents who live along 15th Avenue NW and its side streets – formed a group to make sure our concerns are seriously considered by the church and city.

While we understand the church’s desire to help formerly homeless people in a meaningful way and its need to live out its mission in this community, we also feel strongly that the scope and size of this plan is not appropriate for our single-family neighborhood.
