No hippies, or "gaggles of hens" here. Never drank herbal tea and I am a conservative voter. I suspect I care more about the fate of my hometown than you do. Some people cannot see the forest for the trees. I wonder what you think would "better benefit" Albany? What will bring new people, new business here? What will keep them here????
I sincerely doubt your IQ is really “above idiot.” The city plans TWO new bridges for autos. We really do not even need one, but two? Well save this old bridge as a pedestrian bridge for the people that want to use it as part of the River-walk, cheaper than tearing down and rebuilding. If you HAVE to have another auto bridge, well they already have that in the works too. It will be at Society Ave. Go to a meeting sometime. We taxpayers waste money on all kinds of things that bring Albany's economy DOWN. We are building low income housing that no one even lives in. This will be an attraction to the young professionals that actually WANT to live downtown. THIS will be money well spent for a nice change. The funding would still mostly come from the Federal Government (yes still out of our pockets) but it will BENEFIT the tax-PAYERS for a change, instead of the people that are living on the Gub'ment teat. Albany looks like a slum, fix it now before it is unfit to attract or keep ANYONE with cash to spend here. You want industry and jobs or more slums? Scroll up and look at the “new” hideous bridge they insist we have to have.
No, hatched by a Facebook history preservation group, artists and people that actually care about Albany. quite a mix really. Oh and some of us actually attend commission and other meetings here because we care. Do you? Do you care if Albany survives or fails? I bet you will pick up an move to Lee County like so many others.
That would be a future phase, a walk on the east side. Scroll up and look at the butt-ugly proposed "new" bridge. This old bridge has class, which is sadly lacking in this town.
Uh...read the story. There is a petition, at 500 signatures in less than 2 days.
The bridge is PART of that River-walk. It is old, but it can be repaired. It is similar to some of the most beautiful bridges in America and in Europe. Have you actually LOOKED at it????
I agree. We only tear it down here. We have lost our personality, our sense of community. Keep the bridge!
This bridge is truly a bridge from the past to the future. It is also a dedicated War Memorial. We will have another auto bridge at Society anyway. How many auto bridges do you want or need? Let this beauty stay and become part of the Riverwalk. Maybe you never use it, but some of us love it at the River front.
Bet Bob Brooks knows the answer.
Me too, damn fools here spend our money like it grows on trees. Most of them are as cooked as a mountain road.
