I am a native of Olympia and I cherish the areas that have been set aside for beautiful parks. The idea of taking more pristene areas for housing developments is getting too much, and more thought needs to be put into the planning of land usage.
We have seen a lot of places changed and money spent to accommodate the transient people. I am talking about the fountain on Fourth Avenue where more money is planned to make it a better “spa.”
My main concern now is the property on West Bay Drive that is the nesting area for Blue Herons. If the city won’t try to save it, would a few of you millionaires start a foundation or something to “Save the Herons” and save on your taxes, too? I would if I could, but I can’t.
