Perhaps, but civic leaders are warning it could cost taxpayers money and arouse property-owner backlash.

Stock will take abuse for being the only one with the courage to point out the emperor has no clothes. And badly missing from the article is the history of the Scott Co legislative delegation, opposing funds for rail commuting and state $$$$ for highways. Rep Beard is totally focused on wacko property rights fringe issues. Plant corn.....get corn.Voters need to wake up

Always easier to tell others to fall on the sword when you have a cushy job and big pension waiting on the other side of the fence.

So all these road construction projects are really a subsidy of suburban developers in Scott County. Google "Growth Ponzi Scheme" to see the truth about it. Suburban growth will never again be like it was 10 or 20 or 40 years ago. Gas prices above $5 will seal the deal on that one. And the current generation of people entering the housing market grew up, for the most part, in suburbs. We've been there and we don't like them. Even if we have kids. We'd rather live in a small house in the city and pay extra so our kids can go to a good school if that's what it takes. We grew up in McMansions and we don't aspire to them.
