but if not it would be a good talking point and a reason to attend the meeting
It seems that the usual "no nothing, never here" proponents are teeing up to make sure Pacifica gets what we always get, NOTHING! In my opinion, we don't need a massive freeway for a mile or so, but we need that stretched fixed. If ever there were a time to check in on this subject it will be at the meeting on the 22nd.
June 15, 2010San Mateo County Transportation Authority (SMCTA) informing it that the city no longer sponsors this project. But there is a catch, a $1.3 million catch.
In an earlier contract between Pacifica and SMCTA, an agreement was made that gave the city control over the design of the project, and SMCTA fronted the money, stipulating that the money would be repaid if the project were never built. This $1.3 million repayment has been cited as the main hurdle for council not to vote down this project, which begs the question, "Why not ask the SMCTA board to alter the contract to forgive the repayment?"
This coming Tuesday, June 22, SMCTA hosts an informational meeting at the Beach Boulevard building that normally houses our council meetings in Sharp Park. If, like me, you want this project to go away once and for all, you could show up and say, "Hey, SMCTA, forgive the repayment and vote NO on the widening project and end this craziness once and for all." One way or another, my litmus test this November for council candidates will be this single issue. It's way past time to end this nonsense.
