Free Press editorial, Friday May 7, 1999: "Pretty Pictures"
The MPO mailed a Chittenden Transportation Quarterly newsletter to
residents of Chittenden County this week -- with "pretty pictures" of bike
routes, a bus with bike rack, cyclists relaxing by the lake -- highlighting
bike and public transit. Meanwhile, as the Freep editorial reminds us
today, the reality is that the MPO allocates the pig's portion of
Chittenden County transportation funds for highways -- $93 million is the
price tag of remaining portions of the Circ Hgwy, for example. The Free
Press asks people to call the MPO to voice opposition to the Circ Hgwy!
Please call, and spread the word to others who are opposed to the Circ Hgwy
boondoggle: 660- 4071.
