Subject: Remove CIP40 from Concord’s budget


Dear City Councilors,


I live on (INSERT NAME OF STREET/ROAD/ETC HERE) in Ward (INSERT CITY WARD HERE).


I am against the Langley Parkway Phase 3 extension because it is an expensive and unnecessary project that will destroy a treasured community natural resource. The Parkway is an old plan from the 1950s that doesn’t reflect the current desires of the Concord community and is based on outdated and faulty data.The Parkway won’t fix traffic issues, it won’t save lives, and it destroys habitat and community resources.


I am asking you to remove CIP40 from the budget. It is a waste of taxpayer money, and is an outdated plan that destroys a valued Concord community resource.


Thank you for your time and I hope you will take action to remove this item from Concord’s budget.


Sincerely,


(YOUR NAME HERE)
