Letter to the editor: Talmon project still has shortcomings
July 12, 2023
For a while I was googling for an engineer named Talmon for the 306 Center Street project. But now I see that the name of the project is the Talmon Project in drawings submitted by the developer to the Town of La Conner. Since projects are usually not named after engineers, I assume that the name is joke. Kind of funny. As is the project.
It is still too big. Still lacks enough parking. Still has bad contamination on the western portion of the property. And it is still a design that is cookie cutter. It is an insult to the historic nature of the north end.
But as least it doesn’t have the overrun appendages on the roof as in the original plans. They were removed, as directed by the hearing examiner.
