2035 Long Range Transportation Plan

Chapter 10 of the County’s 2035 Long Range Transportation Plan starts by saying “The cost to implement all the transportation improvements needed by 2035 far exceeds the anticipated revenues.” Page 2 ends with “The combined cost for a balanced and diverse transportation Cost Affordable Plan through the year 2035 is approximately $11.9 billion …” 

Doesn’t $12 billion STILL far exceed the $6 billion expected to come from the penny sales tax increase through 2035? Will the difference have to be made up from our property, gasoline or Federal income taxes? 

Transportation Task Force Chairman Ken Hagan should simply show us all, on one sheet of paper, the projected money-in and money-out for each of the years in the 2035 Plan BEFORE putting a tax increase “referendum” on the ballot.
