Bryant Kuechle (who sent the message below**) works for the consulting company hired by Richland to work on the Rachel Road Alignment Study. His message says the materials from the open house are now available online – a great way to view them if you weren’t able to attend the open house last night.
Comments are seriously considered and have played a big role in the study all along. So if you have comments, please submit them by April 26. You can submit electronic comments by emailing Bryant directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. The comment form here cannot be completed and submitted electronically (it must be printed, completed, and mailed in). It suggests comments in the categories of:
· Alignment alternatives and ranking
· Design elements, and
· Opportunities for environmental enhancement and mitigation.
Page 6 of the displays from last night (located here) provide the Alternative Evaluation Scoring Results. Note that route alternatives C (opposite Rachel Road), E (BPA access road), and G (opposite Lorayne J) ranked relatively closely, with G scoring the highest.
The current plan is to present the results of the study to the City Council on June 6th
If you have questions, please let me know. If I don’t know the answers I will find someone who does.
