The time has come for the City Council to rescind its approval of the village entrance project. I know it can’t do anything official until the Council meets on Oct. 1, but in the interim it can begin the process of changing its mind. All it takes is one of the three who voted “yes” to say, “I’ve reconsidered. I vote no” and become an instant hero.
In so doing he or she will join all those who have already said no, in long lines before the lectern at City Hall, in yard signs all over town, in overflow meetings, and in a torrent of letters to the local press.
The people have voted. The village entrance project is moribund. All that remains is a simple final act.
Just say no.
