I concur with the city council’s choice to withdraw the application to work with the Oregon Department of Transportation on preserving the historic bridge.
I think it would be best to keep the historic marker near the bridge by the pedestrian walkway. I believe it is better to invest in humanitarian projects instead of material projects. There are real needs for the homeless population and assistance on the pandemic issues, to mention just a couple.
