Anyone else think that the Street Rehabilitation charge to Maple Grove homeowners in the form of a special assessment is basically a tax increase? Please just add it to our property tax bill so we can at least use it as a write-off. Seriously, ~$5,000 dollars to be paid in full or with interest over 20 years for a repair that is good for roughly 15 years? I have no problem with paying for roads in need of repair, but a special assessment is not the right way to go about getting the funds for the repairs.

610 at the Zachary exit has too many round abouts for the area at this time. Adding another round about in that area will make it look like Valley Fair. Bad idea.

Round abouts are good for traffic flow but people for one need to know how to use them and sadly many don't. secondly when they are built they need to be built bigger so as not to back up traffic trying to enter them. I personally don't think there is enough room for one to be added here.
