We honestly doubt the GUARDIAN can take any credit, but Tuesday’s STATESMAN was chock full of local news of substance! They even offered up an editorial opinion.
–The Simplot family JUMP project got unanimous approval from the City P&Z commission and in the process the design review committee was publicly spanked for “overstepping the bounds of their authority.” CYNTHIA SEWELL’S STORY.
–The TRANSIT CENTER quest continues with Boise City and Valley Regional Transit passing out plenty of planning and feasibility study money. Team Dave is still pushing for a trolley and the GUARDIAN still thinks a decent bus system with investment infrequent buses and logical speedy routs beats the heck out of preconceived notions of tracks in the street.
–Canyon County HOME PRICES are still on the downhill slide according to a piece in the DAILY PAPER’s newly revived business section. The GUARDIAN isn’t the least bit surprised that Idaho is one of the leaders in upside down mortgages because we were one of the leaders when it came to qualifying people who couldn’t afford to buy. We posted tons of stories like this one under GROWTH topics.
