Senate Roll Call on 2011 Senate Bill 5785
If only our government "representatives" were "representing" us and not their financial supporters. Why shouldn't the land be sold and that revenue be used to cover costs? We'd have the tunnel PAID OFF!
If in deed a tunnel is built, the land that is opened up for use should be sold to help off set the cost to build the tunnel. If a private developer buys the land then impose restriction on them that would require public space and water access for free. This would be no different then the public good threshold that must be met when land is platted or subdivided. Why when budgets are so severely impacted are we not looking at common sense ways to pay the bills?? Oh wait then the city of Seattle wouldn't get to claim this new waterfront park paid for by the citizens from the rest of the state.
