I didn’t even have the time to rejoice for the news of a bicycle path connecting College Place to Walla Walla, when I heard a petition from a few against it has already changed the mind of the Walla Walla City Council.
Why not start a petition from those who actually like the “green” idea? What about the hundreds of college students in town who can’t afford a car or need to save on gas? What about safety for families having their children riding on a nice bicycle path in town?
And, last but not least, what about the trust on the engineering expertise behind the original project in first place?
I wonder, where does the expertise of those who actually signed the petition come from? I have full trust on the knowledge and experience of the engineers of the city. I am proud of them. They have all my support in this project.
I applaud them for coming up with such an intelligent proposal. Walla Walla is a very special place.
More than once, I’ve seen it mentioned in outdoor and travel magazines as one of the best places in the U.S. to live. Check this, with the rise of gas prices this town will regret not having this great opportunity to save on gas and in the end, well, people will blame the city for that.
