WOW! Where to start with that last comment!! This individual does not want his tax dollars going to things he or she does not personally take part in. Even if that thing encourages a healthier community, reduces congestion, and helps the air that even that commenter breathes? Are you, referring to the commenter who titled himself "Seriously?," aware that most cities ran out of space to improve transportation infrastructure years ago? If Portland can show a 10+% reduction in congestion due to anything by 2030, well, I cant see how that would not be advantageous for many other cities across the nation. Last point: If there were only bike and pedestrian paths the amount of tax dollars you would be paying in taxes for upkeep would be next to zero compared to the upkeep of massive bridges and roads which are constantly subjected to loads which are measured in tons. So...bikers and peds save you money...Seriously!!!
