Dear Dean Floyd:
I have read the statement on Road Construction and Resource Use prepared
by your College Committee on Road Construction with considerable interest.
This statement is well prepared and shows the results of considerable
thought and effort. I commend the committee members for the thorough job
that has been done.
I have some reservations about recommendation five on page 12 which recommends
that local community organizations be developed to consider all
matters relating to resource use. In my opinion we are already overorganized
and a lot of time is spent in trying to coordinate things, but
coordination might be taken care of as a matter of course if things were
on a simpler basis. I think we should work through the existing organizations
and endeavor to create a greater awareness and consciousness of
the importance of resource use.
I also feel that recommendation number five is too broad and could lead to
organizations giving consideration to many diverse and unrelated aspects
of resource use. Perhaps the wording of recommendation five could be .
modified to mention specific things in keeping with the title and content
of the statement.
Once again I desire to commend the committee for the thorough, excellent
job that has been done. It certainly points out problems and conditions
that are important enough to warrant the best planning that can be done.
It is written in such a way that I think very few people could take
exception to any part of it.
Very truly yours,
The word "stronger" in the second sentence of the second paragraph
(first complete paragraph) seems to be out of place. I am wondering
if the word should be "weaker" rather than "stronger."
