"...being financed with stinulus funds."
Not free money. Money borrowed from the future of the kids now living in Pickerington.
By the time this non-existent money is paid back, I am pretty sure the streets will have needed to be re-paved several times over.
Another government boondoggle lapped up by local officials.
Rather than signs posted at each project (additional money spent) telling us where they money came from, I would rather have signs that honestly post "These projects being paid for with money your children and grandchildren haven't earned yet."

The money was going to be used no matter what, might as well be used in Pickerington instead of Hilliard or elsewhere. MORPC handed out the money after it secured it to suburbs. The signs have to be placed by law, thank Obama!

The stimulus money was going to be spent somewhere (regardless of how I feel about the stimulus in general) and I'm glad it was used in Pickerington. Too bad sidewalks and/or a bike path were not part of the Columbus Street project.
