town and into the suburbs. Our property values and more importantly our quality of life may be severely diminished. Nevermind the added headache of getting to all the stores that will invariably open alongside the new bypass, competing with our downtown favorites. Plus it will add more incentives for students to think of IU as a "commuter campus," which means more parked cars in our neighborhoods near campus, and more student drivers on our streets. Even I can remember the days when students considered a car to be optional -- this is yet another step away from those days.
