A long process, excellent collaboration, a lot of work, and a big change… but well worth it. My grandchildren will appreciate this improvement to our community for years to come.

I pray that I’m wrong on this:
But I say that there will be more car/pedestrian accidents in the next 5 years on that section of Cascade, as there have been over the past 5 years…
