PHASE ONE Evergreen Homeowners Speak Out
Yesterday, a woman at the corner of Evergreen and Ethel stood on the base rock to try to prevent a concrete sidewalk from being poured too close to her fence. But she and her friend proved too much for the concrete truck. Mr. Kinsey admitted the process was flawed, yet still construction moves forward. Already, pollution has been added to Reed Creek, habitat for federally protected species. A growing number of people who use Evergreen state they would rather see Evergreen left alone than see this impervious slab of concrete inflicted upon it. We have offered low cost alternatives - that match the paths on most of the street! Yet, the million dollar raised impervious slab sidewalk project moves forward.
This is what happens when politics gets in the middle of the process, so "County can be reimbursed for money already spent."
The way I see it (and others share this viewpoint) is a blatant misuse of Safe Routes to Schools funding.
