Many of you have gotten this email or mailing from the people behind Save81. The flyer creates an urgent call to action for citizens to support the Access Syracuse Plan. While, we respect the groups’ dedication to promoting its message that the best course of action is to rebuild 81, we have noticed that the group is lacking some important information – Facts.
The flyer states that the proposal to create a boulevard where the deteriorating highway is now, will create:
Increased Ambulance response time
Threat to local businesses and commuters
Increased Commute Times
But we wonder, where are the facts? Where is the data that supports this? How did they come up with this conclusion? What factual information exists that says that a boulevard will be a threat to businesses and commuters or to ambulance response time?
At Syracuse Urban Properties, we support all groups who are making a difference, as long as they are disseminating information that is helpful to our economy and our future as a thriving city. We ask the Save 81 group to please provide the data, sources and information they have collected that supports their fear oriented marketing campaign.
