Re: “Dix Park, mass transit: Mayor Nancy McFarlane's vision for Raleigh

The people who keep protesting that we don't have the density should look at Austin, TX as an example of a city that waited too long. I argue that Raleigh is much like Austin was 10 years ago. Conservative state capitol with universities and a liberal educated population and steady and rapid growth. The mass transit, as seen in Charlotte, concentrates development along the transit routes. If we wait another 10-years, we'll be in the same pickle as Austin.

Re: “Anybody in Raleigh FOR high-speed rail? No, seriously —

Why is NC4 less expensive? Wouldn't taking the more expensive properties along Peace Street be more expensive than taking some houses along the railroad tracks? The houses built along railroad tracks aren't usually the grandest houses.
