Plan B From Outer Space: Hunt Says It's Time to Get Going on Project Pegasus, S.M. Wright
|If no one else is going to use it, I'm calling my new band Solar-Powered Water Taxi.|
I'm amazed when city staff tells me these other projects simply CANNOT go forward without the toll road. Bull. If tomorrow the Corps of Engineers came back to the city and said there is no way in hell we're letting you build that toll road in that floodway, would the city cry like a little girl and throw up its hands and say, "I guess we can never do Project Pegasus! We'll never fix SM Wright Freeway! That park will never be built! All that development that was supposed to happen along the park, kaput!"?
No. The city would regroup and figure out how to move forward on all the other stuff.
That's what we should be doing now, focusing our energies on Plan B instead of letting this toll road delay all these critical projects indefinitely. The toll road is never going to happen, and we can either accept that now or later.
I vote now.
