What are some things you love about Coronado? Favorite places on the island?
Mayor, with all due respect to the people in other cities, who cares whether they appreciate the idea of Coronado locals getting a free pass for the bridge or not.?They dont pay the enormous property taxes that Coronado residents do. If they wanted to pay 5 thousand a year or so, then perhaps I would listent to their concerns. I think the Coroando residents already pay more than their fare share of taxes. Further, it is their choice to use Orange and totally destroy the setting of City as they drive through to I.B. To suggest a Coronado resident drive through I.B to get to Coronado is not practicle, so that door does not swing both ways. Lastly, and I have been saying this for years, the tunnel will not alleviate traffic through down town Coronado by as much as one vehicle. The only people that are effected by 3rd and 4th are those that live on the 100-300 blocks of the island, (such as myself). Therefore, the billion dollar tunnel, and yes it will end up costing that much, will not even positively effect the majority of Coronado residents. If money is to spent, then it must be for the good of the majority. A tunnel under Glorietta or Orange, connecting the Strand would be the best place for the tunnel. Do you know of the story of the debacle as to how the bridge was placed where it is today? Perhaps we could avoid a similar story. History doesnt necessarily have to repeat itself.
