Tyler challenges height of proposed jail

In January, a supporting document to the city’s request for proposals stated, “No construction shall exceed the highest grade elevation along the property line separating the jail site and the adjoining residential community.”

Tyler said that given the statement and its intent to calm the concerns of nearby residents, he cannot understand how the city is now willing to accept the 101-foot, 4-inch height being proposed by Tompkins/Ballard Joint Venture of Washington.
