Rapid Silver Line Tax Increase Retry is Full Speed Ahead

The ITP’s board meeting in December of 2009 had a discussion about the Rapid Silver Line. It’s clear that they are pressing full speed ahead with coming back to voters to raise taxes, again, for this failed and inefficient project. You can read the meeting’s minutes here.

Mr. Jaiyeoba gave an update on the Silver Line bus rapid transit project and the environmental assessment process. A Power Point presentation was given describing the project, where we are today, potential impacts being considered in the EA, results of the recent traffic analysis and the next steps in the project.

We are working to get a copy of the Power Point presentation referenced in the minutes for more detail. Our guess is that they will try again either this May or in May of 2011.
