Ada County’s chief civil attorney made what some saw as a surprise appearance at the county P&Z meeting Thursday–looking to hump the CLIFFS development at Hammer Flats.
Ted Argyle appeared with his fellow homeowners in the Surprise Valley subdivision asking for a berm along Highway 21 if the project is ever built. Wasn’t Surprise Valley the Peter O’Neil subdivision below the rim and above the river that is literally a sea of rooftops as you look west into the smog? The promo ads on TV featured the screech of an eagle as it soared above the river.
He wants the berm to cut down on the noise from increased traffic on Highway 21. If the berm is anything like the one at Chinden (Highway 20) and Linderer, you can kiss a view of the mountains and foothills goodbye. That one if like driving in the Los Angeles River!
