click image to read in large view
The above editorial written by Ray Yargeau appears in The Coast News.
Ray is against replenishing the tree canopy because it might block merchant signage?
He mocks people who want to walk safely on the east side of 101.
The drainage issue is a red herring.
If the streetscape process is draconian then Ray doesn't know what that word really means.
Roundabout as "traffic choking" has already been disproved.
Neptune allows 14 ft for vehicles but residents want that narrowed to slow down traffic.
Ray mocks attempts to slow down 101 cut through traffic from the I-5 but then mocks out of town bicyclist who want safe bike lanes.
The single north bound lane sounds like the end of the world until you remember that the 101 from Pipe's to Swamis it's a single north bound lane and the world hasn't ended.
"Magic Kingdom" was pretty funny and just might stick.
