in response to April regarding has anybody spoke to planning I personally and some supporters of my also make some calls and emails requesting just what you suggested and if we all get busy doing such a thing and they scare them off or it may indeed grant us an audience. It would be great if someone like yourself or Miss King would represent . I understand the importance of being articulate.

I find the City's responses routinely superficial. The Library and the stadium will be the largest taxpayer-funded municipal projects in our City's history (the airport's capital projects are paid for by user fees and Airport Revenue Bonds) yet City Hall will not allow a vote? And puts up a defense that efforts to force a vote on large City and CCDC expenditures are anti-Boise? Nothing could be the truth: Citizens' desires to have a say in these huge projects--that they will pay for extensively--is pro-Boise.

Okay, I think we've about accomplished what we can accomplish through online discourse. We all see the questions that never get answered. I think we need to speak to the planning department in person, and based on that, begin bending the ear of individual councilpeople. I'm going to try and schedule a face-to-face with the appropriate person in the planning department, whoever that turns out to be. I have a list of questions and concerns (already posted elsewhere on this board) I'll take with me. I've added bird strikes to it. I'll report back with any findings.

Any of y'all know how to contact folks privately through this board? If we're going to approach city councilpeople individually, it might be useful to coordinate, but really doesn't belong on this board.

City of Boise - no new taxes? How will the $35 million in lease financing payments be paid? How will the parts being cut out now for “value engineering” be paid for in future years when they are added (events center, arts & history if cut)? What is the 5year estimate for increases to maintenance, operations, and personnel? What guarantee do we have that this project will not meet “unexpected cost overruns” like the recent bond-supported fire station? There is no reason not to give us a vote on a library bond. Let us vote!

More and more property taxes are diverted into CCDC by taking larger and larger swaths of our city as urban renewal districts. Values are rising regardless of URDs. What would our property tax bills look like with no URDs in place?

We aren't complaining about *a* new library. We're complaining about *this particular design*. What is functional in Salt Lake City won't be here, due to differences in climate and orientation. What's beautiful in Salt Lake City, where they've built quite a bit from pale stone, sticks out like a store thumb in an area made of red brick. Accept that we aren't anti-LIBRARY. Meet us halfway, and let's talk about how to meet the needs of our community at large, not the able-bodied folks who drive to Salt Lake City in particular.
