I am learning more about the proposed interchange daily and want a moratorium on the project until the public had been properly consulted. The entire project, beginning with the Bear Mountain Resort is fraught with back room deals and a disregard for the natural ecosystems that make that area special. It seems developers have trouble understanding that the pristine environments that make the West Coast so attractive become lost when developed. They become paradise lost.
