It is time to compromise

It is time for the proponent of The George to compromise.

So far the only thing we are seeing is The George tearing the citizens of our town apart. If The George proponents are really not thinking of their own profits, then they would compromise.

All the jobs that may materialize, or for that matter the taxes that the Town will receive, will not be worth the conflict this project will have created.

The Gibsons Landing that I am so proud of and that tourists come to see will be changed forever if The George is built. The building of The George will also create a precedent for other tall buildings that are waiting to be built.

If these monstrosities must be built on our Coast, why in the Landing?

Jack Stein, Gibsons
