Last week "Truth in Site" met for the first time fighting the westside location.  Two hundred people came out for that meeting.

 

Small business owner, Ed Barbeau lives on the westside and he's against it too.

 

"First, they got out there and said there's no difference in the traffic patterns.  Well, you can't just put 5-thousand students in that area and say it's not going to be affected -- when there are 300 students in the elementary schools around there and there's gridlock on Mt. Washington and Century right now."

 

Barbeau says like many people on the westside, he's in favor of a four year university, he just doesn't want it on their side of town.  He feels Juniper Ridge would be a better site.
