City should not take on LO's problems


I am appalled that anyone connected with the West Linn local government would ever think that this (Lake Oswego-Tigard Water Partnership) project was a good idea. The negatives are traffic congestion and construction, loss of revenue from the local businesses impacted along the proposed construction route and decreased property values for the impacted homeowners.

We, as West Linn residents, already have our own water issues and why would we take on Lake Oswego problems?

I have a suggestion for Lake Oswego — do the proposed construction along the Willamette bank and when you hit the city limits of Lake Oswego, then you can go through your own local neighborhood and disrupt your lives.

Take a lesson from the impact of the construction of the Oregon City-West Linn Arch Bridge had on local residents. It's still fresh in my mind.
