I would like to commend Mr. Carroll's
thoughtful commentary on the Klingle Road hearings (3/19 Letter to the
Editor). Applause to Council members Cropp, Schwartz, Fenty and Graham
for being so well prepared.
It was encouraging that the National Park Service supports whatever
the DC Council decides and understands that whatever road gets built, a
positive environmental outcome will be the same.
Finally, at the end of the day, the amount of people who testified
really doesn't matter. Compelling testimony matters, as does the quality
of life of those who have been impacted because of the road's closure.
These concerns were brought out so eloquently by road supporters.
While our country is at war, our urban life continues to adjust. We
saw intense gridlock from one guy on a tractor. We need our roads. We're
going to rebuild
Klingle Road--let's make it a road for all of us to use.
