Smaller Alternative

I wish that instead of this MAPS 3 proposal, the city had proposed a Healthy City Initiative (not using the MAPS brand) and included the river improvements, trails, maybe the senior centers, maybe the park, and improvements to other parks and social services throughout the city. Something more in line with the successful 2007 bond issue. I think that would have easily passed and left time to put together a truly radical and transformative mega-project.

Mega-project

And we do need to put together a mega-project. The one that the citizenry asked for was public transportation (and moving people around downtown does not suffice). I do not believe this should be handled by the MAPS brand, but should be a permanent addition to the tax system in the city and the region. For, it must truly be regional and worked out in conjunction with outlying cities and the possibilities for increased rail (and other transport) on a state and national level.
