M.J. Bostwick started this petition to Washington State Law Makers

The retired, disabled and low-income working class neighborhoods in and around the 14.4 mile B.R.T. corridor are being threatened with displacement. Poorly built tenement-style High Density housing is on the drawing board and intended to feed the B.R.T., consuming our neighborhoods. Don't allow the greed of Pierce Transit and the Tacoma City Council to wipeout our well-built homes which have withstood the test of time just as the residents have.

Pac.Ave./Hwy.7 is to be widened for the construction of dedicated B.R.T. lanes with barriers and loading platforms which will result in the "taking" of private property and businesses while eliminating parking. The sharp reduction in left turns will affect the response time of Emergency Services and be unsafe for residents. Limited left turns will create traffic problems in the surrounding neighborhoods which were not designed for heavy use.

Please sign this petition and let your elected officials from the City of Tacoma, Pierce County and the State of Washington know that forcing the low-income working-class population from their homes, creating an unsafe environment for families/pedestrians/vehicles and depriving independent business owners of a livelihood is unacceptable.
