The Bellevue Council recently moved ahead with a plan for adding a Light Rail link to the Eastside and to Bellevue. This analysis gives an opposing view to the likelihood of financial success for this undertaking. Data from several urban planning experts are cited, based on results achieved around the Nation.
Much of the recent Bellevue Council discussion has been limited to HOW BEST TO ACCOMMODATE Light Rail, as opposed to: is this project THE BEST VALUE for Bellevue and Bellevue taxpayers? At bottom line, an appeal is made to the Council to bring more cost-benefit facts to the Citizens' attention. Let's have a balanced look at the whole proposition, including the comparative savings and benefits available from alternate transit approaches.
