Highwater, I think that's the heart of the issue. A slim majority - who are familiar with the lower city and its issues but they don't have a personal stake in it. They just don't see the WIFM, and therefore they're resistant. This is something that as proponents of conversion, we need to do a better job of.

While a strong downtown benefits all, in order to generate the support needed to make this happen, there has to be something in it for the citizens that use the downtown as a throughfare over and above 'changing your travel mode' in order to win them over.
