Whitefish deserves better than Mountain Gateway

The third, critically important meeting to address the Mountain Gateway Development at the junction of Big Mountain Road and East Lakeshore Drive will take place next Tuesday, Jan. 18 in City Council chambers.

Whitefish citizens have already spoken against Mountain Gateway, with thousands of names on a petition, over 400 letters directed to the Planning Board/City Council and hundreds of people who attended and spoke at the two Planning Board meetings. The final recommendation going to Council from the Planning Board was to deny approval of the project.

But we are not done yet. Once again, we must let our voices be heard in a loud roar against Mountain Gateway. The City Council has the final say in approving or rejecting this project and we must fight like hell to oppose it on Jan. 18. That means attending in person or by the internet and speaking in opposition during public comment. Please don’t let ambivalence be a part of your agenda. This project will rip the heart out of our community and it must be stopped.

Remember — 7:10 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 18 at City Hall — LET YOUR VOICES BE HEARD!!!

Carol Atkinson, Whitefish
