Hey Jay, Check out the EcDevImplications pdf on Quite an interesting read. I've only made it through the first 10 pages and I keep seeing the same problem. Development in one area not occuring while excessive development occurs in another. That echoes what I've posted on other articles - we need a multipronged approach. Our intra-city transit system sucks and there's not concrete plan to improve it and yet we keep building roads. What needs to happen is a multipronged approach. Instead of redoing roads without bike lanes and without regard to future considerations like LRTs the cross sections need to be redesigned to allow for them! LRTs and an improved bus transit network need to be implemented ASAP and the existing road network needs to be improved i.e. fix the potholes. Put limitations on trucking hours in the core, change the Gore to a pedestrian zone...I can keep coming up with ideas that could be done and yet they're talking about another highway! Mid-pen highway? Why? If people come to the city and find it in disarray why would they want to live and work here? If only the transportation department would hire someone with less than 5 years of experience...
