Middle Underpass Purpose

We have been thinking about the presentation and discussionat last night’s meeting, which was clear and well run. However, from that discussion it became clearto us that it lacked the Purpose/Mission of the underpass.

As we stated last night, when we and others first proposedthe underpass in the early Downtown Plan meetings, the Purpose was to extendthe Middle Avenue Safe Bike Route from its current termination at UniversityDrive directly to the Burgess complex, so that kids from Oak Knoll ElementarySchool and Hillview Middle School can safely and easily access the Burgessfacilities-- outdoor sports field, activity center, Library, swimming pool,etc.

If the Council, and the appropriate Commissions, feel thatthis is the still the Purpose, then it underscores the need for the Middle/ElCamino intersection solution be appropriate for elementary and middle school kidsand be in lock step with the underpass solution. These solutions require heavy involvement ofthat group of parents.

The Purpose needs to be stated at the start ofevery meeting on this topic in order to focus the discussion and decisions.
