||Regional Transportation Plan
||Boondoggle is how I would characterize the Jefferson
Parkway toll road.
As I understand the proposal, it is increasingly clear that
it's a waste of taxpayer money and it would actually
exacerbate the problems it professes to solve.
It is also an obvious threat to pristine open space,
leading to unneeded sprawl. Life is not better when we
can take a tollway to a brand new Wal Mart in what used
to be native landscape with unobstructed front-range
views. Call me crazy but not all development is good
Improve existing infrastructure, especially along SH-93
where it is most needed. Redevelop historic business
districts within Arvada and Broomfield. But do not build
the toll road. It is not a good idea. Thanks for reading.
