Costs to Home Owners, Seattle and King County?

What will this project cost neighboring home owners? What will it cost the City of Seattle and King County when property values fall? What will the broader costs be when this project becomes the precedent for expanding private businesses, institutions and commercial operations in other neighborhoods which are also protected by City Ordinances and Zoning? Why should we as tax payers and neighboring property owners sacrifice tax revenues, property values, our homes, quiet streets and dark skies so that Blanchet High School benefit financially? They may or may not be renting out our neighborhood for private sporting events, but even if no cash is received by the school, this private organization will benefit directly from our loss.
