With the growing list of structurally deficient bridges in the state, funding for Highway 12 shouldn't be a transportation priority for many, many years. If ever.

One issue with the placement of a roundabout at Plaza and 9th is the flow of traffic at Tietan. Currently the traffic is regulated by the light on 9th. Other options can relieve the traffic at this intersection. Pushing Myra through to Taumarson would probably help.

If a roundabout went in bike/ped needs will be met. I just find both projects part of the problem, not part of the solution.

I would hope our representatives in Olympia will oppose any upcoming revenue package; whether it be gas, carbon or capital gains that includes a roundabout and the completion of Hwy 12 to the top of Nine Mile.

With the best current vision, as mentioned in the above mentioned podcast, of adding more free parking I would hold off on this project. Perhaps the owners should offer the property at the lower price to the private sector before public dollars are committed.

Sounds like it will be worth the wait to do it right. Thanks to the Rotary for their efforts and to Parks and Rec for the improvements. The work I saw today on the Mill Creek Rec trail is appreciated. Good things do happen in Walla Walla. Slowly.

Acceptable spending of Hotel-Motel tax funds can be used for operations and capital expenditures of tourism-related facilities owned or operated by a municipality, such as the aviary.

Both the left and right have harmful opinions. The UB's opinions sometimes are self serving and a detriment to public safety. http://union-bulletin.com/news/2013/m...

oldguyonabike 6 months ago on Walla Walla cuts tie with city-county planning agency

It has to be about money and control. If it was about good planning Rose St. would have bike lanes.

Bicycle lanes on road projects such as Rose St. are also missing thanks to city councils misguided direction. Proper lane markings provide a safety element to our roadways that the city has chosen to ignore.
