Students raise questions about transit project
Students from the Land Use Planning Awareness project and Coachella Unincorporated youth reporters held a discussion about the CV Link project, a proposed 50-mile active transportation trail. Students voiced concerns about safety, privacy, and the $100 million price tag despite a lack of input from East Valley communities. “My family is not going to get on the CV Link at any time, so they think whatever our officials decide is final. But if there’s something you don’t like about it, and you voice your concerns, it becomes an even better project if it’s been improved by community input.” Some views on the project and questions for Coachella Valley authorities are on Coachella Unincorporated.
