Excuse me. Mr. Jim Dornblaser I am NOT a cry-baby, but I am against
the Bridge to Nowhere until some questions are answered.
Who will develop and pay for
the infrastructure required to develop Gravina Island? i.e.
power, water, sewer, streets/roads, etc.?
How and who will pay for the
maintenance of the bridge if it is built?
Shouldn't we repair the existing
road/street systems, the domestic water system and the schools
in Ketchikan Borough be repaired/updated first?
What about cleaning up and
developing Ward Cove property into a more profitable area?
I feel we need to take care
of what we have prior to opening more land to development.
With the Bridge to Nowhere,
I suspect our taxes will be raised. I'm retired and live on
a fixed income - so I guess when/if the bridge is constructed,
I'll be moving 'outside'.
