With gas prices what they are and the financial analysts and politicians claiming they will only get higher, I find it ludicrous to postpone the plan to build an underground transportation system to service the metro area.

I think many people were counting on the estimated date of use to keep their household budgets in check. I know many people are actually having to quit their jobs due to commuting costs. Have you ever driven from one side of the metro to the other? I have and I can tell you we live in one of the most sprawling cities in the country. The distance from Englewood to Kenton is 67 miles, one city limit to the other. If you drive from the northern portion to the further southern tip, you will find the distance is 72 miles. Add in traffic, stop lights and signs and you find the time almost doubles during peak hours.

I am working on a petition for concerned citizen to sign, requesting you reconsider cancelling this important project. It seems to me the new downtown coliseum should take a backseat to the transportation issue.

My signed petition and I plan to be at the next Council meeting.
