Why is the Sentinel quoting a Sterling resident? He should keep his mouth shut and concentrate on the backwoods politics of Sterling. The city had to build the plant because of their incompetance and mistakes, the surrounding residents should not be penalized for the city's mismanagement of the water quality (Matthew Maro). The hard working, HIGH tax paying residents of that area deserve better.

Oh, I get it- beacuse that area has more money than other parts of the city, they should get to decide how their neighborhood looks even when its on city property.

Wonder how cheaper it would have cost to build the plant with a "conventional" design? Do the Windmills on the roof function ?

It only make sense that this was done for this specific area. Besides the fact that people in this area pay a larger portions of the city's tax revenue compared to other areas, if this was not aesthetically pleasing it would decrease property values and the city would receive less tax money in the long run

I agree if this was on mechanic street, we should expect bottom of the barrel infrastructure -since most of these residents dont even pay taxes. But people in that neighborhood actually work and deserve to get what they pay for
