Prop. 2 will fund Cross Kirkland Corridor albatross | Letter
October 11, 2012 · 2:24 PM
Finally a proponent of Proposition 2 has stated the primary purpose of the levy. Brenda Nunes states: “This levy ensures that the critical funding necessary for the Cross Kirkland Corridor … is in place.”
Thus, the city desperately needs funds to make something (anything) of this albatross of a rail bed that has already cost us $5 million. I believe less than 95 percent of Kirkland residents will ever use the trail, unless they like to look at industrial buildings or into people’s back yards. That is all I saw riding the Dinner Train, and taking my dog to poop when I lived beside the trail at Carillon Point Heights.
Kirkland parks are now well maintained with current funds. If the Corridor developers want their funds, they should ask the residents for direct funding for their special projects.
