Take Route 84 to the voter
The Highway 84 Route should not be decided the vote of two city councils and one special interest group. The original route is the proper solution to a regional traffic problem that effects all the cities in the area now and in the future.
This is s a regional problem and should have been solved by regional agencies, not local governments fighting for funds if the original route [plan] is dropped.
This is a serious enough problem that if local governments and regional agencies fail to solve it should go to the voter. The local voters approved the route and voted for the bonds to pay for it years ago and they are effected the greatest if the original plan is not completed.
Take it to the VOTER, they know what they need and are not afraid to say so.
