in 202 path deserve answers

am hoping for a more concrete reply or assurance from one of our elected
officials. I feel we have nowhere to go.
My husband and I put all our savings into this home we bought and now we cannot
seem to get those out at the time of our need. I am afraid that the big picture
will overshadow the small community of people in Ahwatukee. Our opinion and vote
will not matter when the big players get to decide.
The truck drivers and people in cars on Interstate 10 have not contributed to
this community and the beautiful, serene surroundings. It is the people who live
here, pay taxes and who appreciate this setting and South Mountain Park for all
its natural beauty.
will not help if the governor does not bring this up more publicly that locating
the freeway south of Pecos will be better for everyone. I find it hard to
believe that very many Foothills property owners east of Central would take the
route to 55th Avenue (best case) just to head east on Interstate 10 to go back
to downtown Phoenix. And I find it nearly impossible to believe that anyone
heading to downtown Phoenix from the Foothills would drive out to the Loop 101
connection just to head back to downtown Phoenix.
Based on your examination of the above, I think you will support the position
that this route is really a Phoenix bypass for the truckers on I-10 heading
ADOT has wasted 20 years planning on this route, and it has still no solution.
We have also been told it will be a raised freeway, in the middle of a densely
populated community and the largest municipal parks in the world. It's like ADOT
is saying to us, "My way or the highway."
Residents deserve better planning and better answers. Will anyone respond?
