I'm stunned by the figure listed for our zip code!
Eeeeek... We'll be extra careful to make sure any guests to our home are invited guests.
I want to thank you for the great coverage you have given this issue. I wish the other media would take a cue from these articles and give the citizens of Raleigh the information we deserve about such an important project.
And yes, our neighborhood groups *have* disseminated more information in a few weeks than the city and NCDOT have in a few years. We deserve better.
I greatly appreciate the incredible amount of time donated by the members of the PRTF to helping bring Raleigh's transit options into the 21st century. We can and should disagree with their recommendations without personally vilifying the persons themselves.
The "some houses along railroad tracks" you refer to are homes in historic districts cared for greatly by their residents, you need to look at the specifics instead of using stereotyped generalities to make an informed opinion on this situation. Have you even been in these neighborhoods? I think not.
The NO on NC3 citizens are *FOR* the SEHSR! What are you talking about here? We just want to promote better options for transecting downtown Raleigh. To say this is just a bunch of whiny snob NIMBYs is taking an ignorant, simplistic, easy-way-out of discussing the reality of this issue. Your comment indicates you are woefully misinformed.
Also, see "NC4".
I am coming to see that the new alternative nicknamed "NC4" is looking like a potential win/win as well. Now this is the kind of thinking me and my fellows who oppose NC3 have been seeking. Here's hoping to some fruitful discussion from here on out... we do need this project after all.
That is a very long line of homes you are talking about, Five Points and Glenwood-Brooklyn are affected. I don't think they are even counted in the Affected Structures matrix in the DEIS either.
For the money that SEHSR will cost to complete, *other options* such as the one attached to this article are worth developing instead of the weak offerings the current three alternatives provide Raleigh.
Most of us were not just being polite when indicating we support high-speed rail in Raleigh. Our support makes adds to the frustration with the entities who "settled" on the bad-to-horrible options... it doesn't have to be this way.
And we *know* NC3 will do real damage to our neighborhoods. And we know it unanimously.
