To the editor:
Why, why, why aren’t these things done? Here is my top 10 list of things that are unfinished in Lawrence:
Why can’t Sixth Street get finished? Perfect weather, workers standing around?
Why can’t they finish the bridges going to North Lawrence?
Why do we not have a grocery story in North Lawrence?
Why do we not have an Olive Garden at 27th and Iowa? The busy intersection has been vacant for 10 years.
Why do we not have a Red Lobster?
Why did it take a Kansas City developer to come to Lawrence to create a viable project at Ninth and Delaware, which I knew needed attention 20 years ago?
Why isn’t the South Lawrence Trafficway done after 15 or 20 years of costly delays?
Why does the police department need 42 new officers when it has 10 abandoned police cars at the city maintenance garage?
Why does the city continue to let 1313 Haskell continue to be unfinished? Nothing has been done on this eyesore for five years.
Why doesn’t the city do what they are paid to do? Let Lawrence be Lawrence.
