Anytime Uncle Sam makes you purchase something or pay a fine... It can't be good!
I find it rather ironic UA tuition has increased 188 percent in the last ten years while article 11 section 6 of the Arizona State Constitution clearly states " The university and all other state educational institutions shall be open to students of both sexes, and the instruction furnished shall be as nearly free as possible".
$10,000.00 tuition and 188 percent increase over ten years isn't exactly constitutional is it?
Frankly a bike ranch is the better alternative to a residential subdivision with subsequent barking dogs and stray cats any day! There already exists a nasty traffic problem in the area and some how that has been used as a rather poor argument against developing the bike ranch… what needs to happen (even if the ranch is not approved) is Pima County fixing the traffic problem… widening the road by two lanes and installing wildlife bridges or tunnels so the critters don’t get run over. I have also heard the light pollution card being played as an argument for not developing the ranch… jeez… the new Wal-Mart looks like a miniature U/A stadium! The entire valley is just one big light bulb. Maybe a better solution would be we all just turn off our porch lights for now and stop frequenting the Saguaro National Monument. I don’t blame the owners if they just go the residential subdivision route rather than the Bike Ranch… they will make a heck of a lot more money developing homes that’s for sure and Pima County would receive more tax dollars as well.
