Letter to the Editor: Library could move and still be in town

What happened to the third option for the Vashon library to be built anew just west of the Napa store? The branch would remain inside the town core, conveniently close to the Post Office, and offering a chance to revitalize nearby Vashon Plaza. Moving to K2 will only contribute to further sprawl and increased traffic congestion along Vashon Highway; tearing down and building a new branch at its present location would inconvenience patrons during construction and seems to be objectionable to the King County Library System.

The site on S.W. 178th is large enough for increased parking, is reachable for a sizeable pedestrian population and even has room to landscape another park. When did this option disappear?
