$60 million per mile. What a waste of taxpayers' money! You could dramatically enhance the Orbit and bus systems citywide in Tempe for less. You could encourage redevelopment all over Tempe for less. It is so sad that just because you can get the money from our bankrupt Federal Government it is okay to do projects like this. The redevelopment success along the light rail is overstated. The ridership of the light rail is overstated.
The whole route is already developed and doing fine except for thestrip mall at Southern and Mill, Danyell Plaza. So why in the worldare we doing this project? It seem like a gift to the owners of the strip mall, or just anotherattempt to turn the neighborhoods along mill into offsite parkingfor ASU and the downtown merchants. WE DON'T WANT THIS! WE DON'T NEED THIS!!Its time to throw out everybody at Tempe City hall.
