Residents stand against scenic byway designation

Posted: Wednesday, September 01, 2004

We have to agree with borough assembly member Merkes' analysis of the Sterling Highway scenic issue. From the "Y" to Homer, the road frontage has lots of "Alaskana" to view, contrasting the plastic scenic Seward Highway look from the "Y" to the Turnagain Arm flats, in our opinion. We have enough summer tourists polluting the byways locally. Do we want a Los Angeles type of road gridlock, (with an influx of additional tourists coming here) to view a federally approved and advertised a National Scenic Byway? We think not, as a lot of us moved to this area to escape vehicle congestion.

Bill and Samon Arnold, Sterling
