Letter to the Editor: Dirt Exchange profile fails to mention Ard's part in small lot development

Dear Editor:

I found the front page article on the Ard family quite interesting, but was also disappointed that you didn't mention Brittani's land use work in Ballard. Brittani is (was) a driving force behind developing the small lot housing (skinny houses and multi-dwellings where one house sat prior) that have sprung up on so many streets in the Ballard area. We are very fortunate to have her work blight our neighborhood and get to look across the street at one everyday. She should be given public credit for her work so those using the Dirt Exchange know where the dirt may be coming from or going to.

Sincerely,

RM Hayes
