Spokesman Article Summarizes Horizon 2040

So do you believe me now? About the future of population growth and the impacts on our transportation system, I mean? Because it's in the newspaper, I mean. Sometimes, like with my dad, I can talk until I'm blue in the face about something and no one absorbs it. Two days later though I'll get a call saying, "So I saw in the newspaper that there's supposed to be an increase in vehicle travel in our area by 2040..." Really, dad? That's facinating.
Anyway, our Horizon 2040 plan is the subject of the bulk of the Spokesman-Review's "Getting There" column today, so if you haven't looked through our actual plan, you can read   
There's also the option of watching the cool video on Horizon 2040 that City Cable 5 put together for us...
