Thank you, correction..I guess I did not do the proper research, just took the first figure that popped up when searched. Your figure proves my point even more. The state would not spend $14 million on the highway for the benefit of some business in our small county....obviously other reasons are behind this project.
So... Humboldt county with it's population being less than 200,000 people, is so important that they are widening the road at a cost of 3 million dollars? What business is important enough here to warrant that? Obviously there are other benefits that they are thinking of that we don't know about.
They do not need to widen the road. How do target, sears, kohls, safeway etc...get all of their goods delivered? This will end up costing us in the long run. Our highway will become open to all trucks traveling through, not just trucks delivering to our area stores.
Which means, more pollution and more road repair costs for our county. Oh and the fact that while they work on that area we will be stuck for who knows how long when driving south due to construction. Our state has to close state parks (which we all know brings tourists and money to us) because of budget problems, yet we are going to spend money on a needless construction project. Foolish!
How would CR have the money to buy this building when they are going broke?? They have cut classes to ridiculously low levels!! Some people have to wait more than one semester to get the last class for their degrees! I think CR needs to focus on what they already have and not take on a building that needs tons of repairs. I have heard plenty of comments from some of the Cr staff about the president and his mistakes, maybe someone else needs to take control...
