Seattle Times letters to the editor

November 27, 2013 at 7:34 AM

Keep up with the times, accept micro-housing

Change is difficult, but the city can’t cling to the past

Thanks to The Seattle Times for urging me to step outside my comfort zone in order to gracefully accept the micro-housing being constructed without any parking allotment: the apartments and condos being built with inadequate off-street parking and other high-density, low-parking plans for my Ballard neighborhood [“A coherent affordable housing strategy needed,” Opinion, Nov. 21].

According to The Times, “Change is difficult, but the city cannot cling to the past.”

I have decided that I need to get with the times and make some changes. In the future, I will be parking my car as indicated in the illustration.
