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.

The leakage also does a very good job of watering our urban trees while at the same time providing a robust root structure that has wreaked havoc on the sidewalks. Some cities have a sidewalk program that helps provide maintenence funds for sidewalk repair.

Making positive changes in public safety hasn't been a priority for Councilmember Jenkins as evidenced by her vote on the removal of bike lanes from Rose Street corridor development. I am still undecided as far as sheriff.

Putting the bike lanes back on Rose St. would make the road safer for everybody. Councils direction of engineering is ethically challenged and fiscally irresponsible.
