County should ad­dress traf­fic is­sues

Record Observer - - News -

I at­tended the trans­porta­tion meet­ing that was writ­ten about in the Nov. 11 edi­tion of (the Record Ob­server). I read with in­ter­est when it was men­tioned one of our com­mis­sion­ers stated “we need help now ... crit­i­cal months with traf­fic is­sues ... vol­umes of ve­hi­cles ... af­fect­ing lo­cal busi­nesses, cit­i­zens and emer­gency ser­vices .... ”

I find it ironic that the de­vel­op­ments our county plan­ning board ap­proves and then pass fa­vor­ably through the com­mis­sion­ers in­volve 200 to 1,100 new apart­ments each. Yet, they seem un­able to see how their ac­tions will im­pact our traf­fic con­cerns.

You know it is said, re­move the beam from your own eye first be­fore talk­ing about the speck in some­one else’s. HE­LEN BEN­NETT
