I don’t know much about politics, but I know what I like.
That’s why I’m going to fill in the bubble for bikes and vote “Yes” on Measure 26-80.
Passage of 26-80 will do lots of great stuff for the health and livability of our region. The cash raised would help Metro finish gaps in several popular trails (like the Springwater) and make connections from local to regional trails (like the Gresham-Fairview Trail).
I can’t believe a certain local weekly newspaper thought it would be cool “send a message” to Metro and tell folks to vote no on this.
We need to get this measure passed so Metro has the cash to make the big deals that result in more places to ride.
Here’s a list of the trails that could benefit from the passage of this measure:
- Sellwood Gap of the Springwater Corridor
- Cazadero Trail
- Fanno Creek Greenway Trail
- Westside Trail
- Gresham / Fairview Trail
- Tonquin Trail
- Willamette River Greenway
- Columbia Slough Trail
So fill in the bubble for bikes and vote “Yes” on Measure 26-80. Seems like a no-brainer to me.
