Five Mile Rezone

Our county commissioners recently change the zoning development from low residential to apartment complex building. This decision favors the raising of more tax dollars and lowers the quality of life (more noise and vehicle congestion). The two roads already have traffic problems.

This decision will add about 200-300 more vehicles entering into a congested Waikiki Road. The emergency exit enters into a downhill blind curve — extremely dangerous, especially during winter.

I compare this decision to pouring raw sewage into the Spokane River and saying it will not effect fish nor grow noxious weeds. You would be hard-pressed to find a current resident who agrees with your decision. Please revert back to the original zone building decision.
