Fields: Questions on the Summit Cove Loop project

I attended the Summit Cove Loop project open house recently and was disappointed that there wasn’t much of a Q and A. It is my understanding that the proposed improvements will be paid with surplus tax funds; however, I overheard a road and bridge employee who stated that each property owner would be assessed for new culverts, once for a single culvert and twice for two culverts in circle driveways. He remarked that this would be necessary to upgrade existing culverts to support the new roadway. I did not have the opportunity to ask questions about this.

I am opposed to making forced upgrades to my culverts. I am concerned about the funding for this project and want to see full transparency now. I oppose the project if I will be expected to provide funding in this way.
