To the editor:

Shirley Miller’s Jan. 30 letter contains unfortunate misinformation about the 37 Interlaken project.

For example: She has no basis for claiming that the many jobs to be created will not pay a living wage. And why would the developer want to import labor — an expensive proposition — rather than use local workers?

As 37 Interlaken’s lawyer stated at the select board meeting on Jan. 28, it would be foolish and mindlessly expensive for the developer to prepare formal design documents before he has an expectation that the project has a reasonable prospect of being approved. When the planning board and town meeting approve the proposed bylaw change, the developer will promptly produce detailed and complete design documents for all to see.
