Good news on the progress of a pedestrian bridge study

logo Latest in a series of posts on Walkability and Bikeability logo

Gadfly reported a few days ago that the Rose Garden was awarded a $210,000 grant.

But was not aware that in the same grant bundle the City was awarded $40,000 for the study of a pedestrian bridge.

See Senator Boscola’s bulletin: http://www.senatorboscola.com/enews/2019_11_19_BB.htm

And, in addition, the Mayor announced at Council Tuesday night that the County has approved a $60,000 grant application for the bridge as well.

  1. As the city and government funds become a bigger part of this, watch out for what some of us warned about two years ago: a tendency to focus more on utilitarian and cost aspects (and less on aesthetic & community-building aspects). This can be avoided, but the tendency is there and will become more of a threat if we let it.
