1. WSDOT will host an open house [for the SR510 Yelm Loop Project] directly followed by an access hearing at the Yelm Middle School Commons at 4 p.m. on Wednesday, July 26, 2006. The access hearing will start at 6 p.m. (“An access hearing is a legal procedure to allow abutting property owners and others the opportunity to provide testimony related to property access. A Hearings Examiner will conduct this formal process. Comments will be recorded and included in the project record.”) Yelm Middle School Commons is located at 402 Yelm Avenue West. The 2005 Transportation Partnership Project program allocated $33 million to fund the design and right of way for this project.”
Key questions to ask at this hearing:
B. The report shows an unfunded amount of $35 million. With continued delays on the start of this project, has the costs of acquiring land, interest on borrowing money, construction costs & fuel, plus inflation made this balance inaccurate? Are we looking at a project total closer to $100 million?
2. Millennium RV, Inc. on 93rd near Yelm Ave. West is leaving our town saying Yelm’s city council and restrictions on doing business here are no longer palatable for them to operate. Stop in and wish them well as they have supported this towns RV servicing needs for years. This writer wishes them well in their new location in Randle. City Hall, are you taking note of this business’s departure, along with Amtech and others?
What do you, the area citizen think of this?
How will our town’s landscape change with the new Super Wal-Mart under construction this year?
