Brilliant idea so Seattle Space Needle views won't be blockedMarch 14, 2013 @ 5:21 pm (Updated: 5:38 pm - 3/14/13 )
For every problem, there's an obvious solution. Duh, just build more Space Needles. In fact, you could string some wires between many needles and fly gondolas over the city too.
"A Space Needle view is the only thing that gives our lives meaning in Seattle," states the Facebook page Build Additional Space Needles.
A survey released this week by EMC Research - commissioned by the Space Needle - claims a majority of Seattle voters support protecting public views of the landmark from South Lake Union.
The survey found 76 percent supported the idea of "requiring that the new development rules for South Lake Union protect important public views."
On its website, the Space Needle asks residents to contact City Council members and encourage them to support keeping park and SLU views of the Space Needle as they finalize the zoning rules for the Seattle neighborhood.
But there are a lot of people who don't have a view of the majestic landmark now.
What about them?
Hence the build additional Space Needles campaign.
People who are having fun with the idea comment, "We need underwater Space Needles as well." Another readers suggests we build an Eiffel Tower because "it might help us export more Washington wine."
