What could $4.2 million buy?

4 buses including operating costs for 12 years,
8 miles of multi-use paths or physically separated bikeways,
20 miles of bicycle boulevards,
25 apartments for low-income families,
80 street closures (to allow people through but not vehicles),
1500 Corvallisites covered by universal health care for one year, or

a parking garage.

How do you want the city to invest $4.2 million?
