Re: “New round in Foss hotel fight” (TNT, 2-15).
I am writing as a concerned citizen, small business owner and Tacoma resident regarding news that the Hotel Murano owner is delaying construction of the Marriott Residence Inn proposed for the Thea Foss Waterway by pursuing a shoreline permit appeal to the Washington Supreme Court.
Admittedly I have a personal stake in this subject. When construction begins, my café, which is adjacent to the site, will see an increase in business. But I have modest goals: to meet my obligations and pay myself and my employees a living wage.
