Spokesman-Review Letter to the Editor
Plaza Project is Stupid
The STA board and Spokane City Council didn’t want people hanging out in front of the plaza? Easy guess: yes!
I don’t give a rip about the placement of cougars or waterfalls. Spending $4.7 million on a structure worth less than $3 million is plain economic stupidity.
The STA board members need their noggins examined. Also requiring some mental treatment are the light rail and University District foot bridge proponents.
There was a group in Spokane called “Priorities First.” Their name reflects a refreshing way to spend tax money.
Mr. Swanstrom isn't the only person I've heard express this opinion. But then again, I've also heard from people who are excited about it because they don't use the Plaza currently because of concerns about some of the clientele. What's your thoughts on the subject?
