Once they get the $$, it’s a done deal
Those citizens who oppose the Sunset Blvd Walkway are missing a crucial point. The city has a federal grant for project design. This means it's a done deal.
Exhibit A - the Five Corners roundabout, which upon receiving a federal grant, was a done deal.
These monuments to the egos of the city administration, and particularly the Public Works department, represent needless expenditures of taxpayer dollars, which could be spent on more deserving projects.
