Er­ror to vote it down

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - VOICES -

How dis­ap­point­ing that a few ap­par­ently un­in­formed Pu­laski County jus­tices of the peace could pre­vent the con­struc­tion of a recre­ational trail be­tween Lit­tle Rock and Hot Springs.

Where have they been? Don’t they know that bik­ing and hik­ing are big busi­ness now? It’s not just the lo­cals who would par­take. Avid bik­ers and hik­ers don’t just ride or walk around the block. They travel, stay in ho­tels/ mo­tels, use state parks, eat at restau­rants, and buy gas, gear and sup­plies. Mr. Phil Stow­ers is mis­taken in putting down this pro­posal.

This is im­proved in­fra­struc­ture at its best. When we refuse the money it will sim­ply go to some other county with a plan and in­tel­li­gent jus­tices of the peace. SU­SAN G. BOYLE Lit­tle Rock
