- Bloomington road resurfacing is seriously underfunded
- Tari has stacked the commissions with people who think just like him
Tomorrow the Historic Preservation meeting is at 5:00 in the Council Chambers. http://www.cityblm.org/Home/Components/Calendar/Event/5532/17?backlist=%2f
On the agenda is discussion of a Master Plan for Brick Streets. Keep in mind Master Plans are suggestions when the Council is asked to vote for one, but gospel that must be followed after.
See the proposed plan here: http://www.cityblm.org/Home/ShowDocument?id=14276
Page 4: This Committee will approve it, then the Transportation Committee will approve it, then the Planning Commission, and finally the City Council. After all these people said “aye”, what choice does the Council have?
I’m not for or against brick streets. They are more expensive but last much longer.
I don’t understand how the Council can look anyone in the face and approve costly repairs to brick streets when the other roads are rated poor and the funding currently allocated keeps them rated poor.
If you want to be heard on this issue don’t wait until it gets to the Council. The resolution will already be written by then.
