Save S curves and the money
The Stewart Parkway S curves add a delightfully quirky nature to our Roseburg area. I love that we are not a boring “cookie cutter” copy of other cities. Did all town planner’s go to the same school? Let’s keep a little originality, it adds to the charm of our town.
Of greater importance, this area is home to a variety of wildlife and a major recreation area for residents. A previous writer noted that we will always have congestion around the YMCA, tennis area, etc. This is true. How will speeding up the traffic in this general location affect the safety of our children and families, people biking and the wildlife. This is not the area to be trying to speed up the traffic.
I also agree with the previous letter writers regarding the ridiculous amount of money involved with this plan. Maybe the newspaper could organize a poll and see where Roseburg residents would rather spend $2.75 million.
