Re: "Tacoma's light rail could get $75M in federal funds" (TNT, 2027).
First Tacoma's mayor charges $50 to hear how we are doing as a city and then asks for $27 million more to build light rail to the Central District.
Where is the public input? Because I hope the city has taken a poll of the number of people who want this.
And what about the folks living along Stadium Way? They just endured a rebuilding of the road which will possibly be torn all up again, wasting millions. I'm not so sure that Stadium High School will love having a rail system run next to the campus.
Never miss a local story.
My advice is to take that $75 million and fix the infrastructure that is broken now. The public might appreciate having potholes fixed more that an expanded trolley system.
