Buchanan or bust. Proposal seems to lack supporters

Ballot Question No. 1, the vote to change the controlled-growth ordinance in minor ways, has received the bulk of the debate in this election cycle, even though Ballot Question No. 2 might have far greater impact if passed. Question 2, the vote to consider thinking about extending Buchanan Boulevard south to the Interstate 11 bypass, has gone almost unremarked on even though it could have a massive impact on commercial development patterns. So far I haven’t found a single candidate or public official willing to acknowledge support for the Buchanan extension.
