Pope-Chaucer Bridge Replacement


Among the six alternatives presented or discussed in public meetings, our
strong preference is for the alternative that replaces the bridge but
includes NO FLOODWALLS and results in minimum oak loss. (This is Alternative
#3 in the list posted by Save the Oaks.) Both of the alternatives that
require construction of floodwalls are completely unacceptable to us, not
only because of the aesthetic result (destruction of the creek setting that
we love), but also because of the negative impact they would have on
property values.

In the information that we have reviewed, we have seen no mention of how
this project (40 year and future 100-year) is to be financed. One would
think that when comparing the various alternatives, project costs would have
been one of the parameters to compare. Is there any information available on
