Amber Weilert 10/13/22 5:41 PM A design made in 1997 is to out of date regarding the safety policies that we have today. A design reevaluation must happen and be brought up to date with 2022 Vision Zero standards. Today’s times includes equal safety for all modes of transportation— especially and including cyclists and pedestrians. The ultimate design factors on a road design should never be solely designed around speed. Our community members, (our children!) are dying from traffic violence. - Michael’s mom

Jack E Miller 10/14/22 11:21 AM The design should manifest the best known safety considerations. It would be prudent that the design would meet Vision Zero standards.
Kate J Tungsvik 10/14/22 2:10 PM It's a no brainier. Anything designed twenty-five years ago having to do with transportation is outdated. With the increased population in the area and constant distractions drivers continue to focus on, the roads have become unsafe for pedestrians. They weren't designed for so many cars or for pedestrians at all. Anything that can be done to save a life should be done no matter what the cost. One lost life destroys so many others in it's wake. There's no amount of money that can fix that. The county needs to do their job and keep it's people (who pay for it to exist.) safe. It's just that simple. My vehicle tabs cost about $70, but I'm charged somewhere around $300. The rest of it goes to build the transit that I don't use or quite frankly give rip about. I'd rather be taxed for projects like this. The "Zero" in vision zero, stands for lives lost. Make it happen.
Katie Moriarty 10/14/22 2:47 PM I support this resolution to reevaluate the road design in today's Vision Zero standards. Roads need to be designed for safety not speed.
Christina Walters 10/14/22 6:16 PM I 100% support the canyon road extension design. However it needs to be updated to todays road standards and needs to include pedestrians and bicyclists.
David Weilert 10/15/22 10:10 AM As we build and upgrade these traffic corridors, it's important that it is safe for all users. This extension needs to be built, but it also needs to be built to today's standards.
Divona Rounds 10/16/22 8:50 AM Please redesign this major road for safety first. Safety is more important than speed.
Alexis Jordan 10/16/22 8:58 PM I am for this proposal.
terry hurd 10/18/22 2:37 PM There is an ever-increasing list of planed and not built infrastructure tho densification and construction are allowed. Why make a plan and ignore all studies without stopping the densification that caused the problem. All impact fees now drop out of the intended use area. To build somewhere over the rainbow does not help us. The wording of the ord. is double talk. Terry
Bryan Wallace 10/20/22 7:56 PM I am a strong supporter of Project Zero community safety should be the strongest influence how tax payers dollars are invested.
