County raised important issues concerning arts center | Letter to the Editor

Thank you so much for the article concerning Vashon Allied Arts’ proposed performing arts center (“County officials question art center’s design”).

The King County Historic Preservation Office has raised important aesthetic issues concerning the “streetscape” that would result from a structure of almost unprecedented size in a historic area. As they noted, their argument is not about the intrinsic merits of the facility or its design, but its relationship with existing buildings.
