Jason >> From personal experience having walked/biked in that part of the city, I can assure you that there is a great need for this crossing

If there is such a huge need, why don't you organize with the other cyclists/pedestrians and finance it yourselves? You could charge a nominal toll and if the benefit to users was greater than the cost, you would make money on the deal. Otherwise, you have zero idea how important this crossing is and therefore is just another waste of precious capital. If the money is coming from taxpayers anyway, why not just take it in the form of a toll? That way, only the people who benefit pay. Seems fair to me and that's probably why you won't support it.
