Council Drinks CRC Kool-Aid wthout Benefit of Hearing

The Mercury and Oregonian are both reporting that all five Portland City Council members have signed on to a letter (the Mercury site includes a link to the letter) embracing the replacement bridge for the Columbia River Crossing along with a number of conditions that map pretty closely to the Metro resolution (independent analysis of greenhouse gases, selection of final bridge options to be driven by a more locally-focused oversight committee, etc.).

Of course, City Council won’t actually hold a public hearing on the CRC until July 9th, nor do I believe they have had the benefit of a final recommendation from the Planning Commission on the topic…

Nice of them to make all this clear so we don’t have to guess how Sam Adams will vote tonight at the task force meeting.
