Being stuck in the Mesa street mess that we are enduring more and more frequently I could not help but think about the difference between the downtown arena situation and the failure to extend Stanton street.
Extending Stanton would greatly help alleviate much of the traffic snarl. The project has been proposed many times over the years but has never come to fruition.
Evidently property owners would be damaged.
Some residents of the area where the city plans to build the arena are objecting to the damage that will be caused them.
None of us have to think too hard to understand the difference.
We deserve better
