RE: Upland Development
By Marty West
October 01, 2005
In a recent letter Sam Bergeron
asked about development of "much needed uplands development
(by) adding: public restrooms, phones and revised traffic".
Over ten and a half millions
dollars in the recently voted down revenue bond election was
for just such improvement- to relieve pedestrian and vehicle
traffic congestion and to provide other amenities.
The Council did hear what the voters said at the ballot box.
We also heard from people like Mr. Bergeron who were clear that
they want better sidewalks and less congestion. This is why the
city council recently voted to complete the contract for the
design work to make these upland improvements.
I agree with Mr. Bergeron-
doing nothing about much needed "uplands development"
is not an option I prefer.
