Re: “A Raleigh neighborhood doesn’t want the city’s street “improvements”

I think it's really important to get this clear. There's a lot of faulty logic in this story. Roughly 41 homes compose the street/neighborhood. So 68% of the neighborhood supports the proposition - that includes the northern end of the street. If you break out the northern end of the street into a smaller subset, there is a similar ratio of homeowners that did not sign the petition (from the numbers presented, you can't say that someone that did not sign is automatically against it - just that they did not sign. But that's a separate issue.). There are clearly neighbors that are against the project, but their tactic has been to over-state the level of "doesn't want the city's 'improvements' ". As an example, they have gotten their dissatisfaction put into IndyWeek.
Now, the title of this article is more than misleading; it is patently false to say that the neighborhood doesn't want the "improvements". Some do not, but clearly the petitioned numbers show the opposite for an overwhelming majority. This "article" seems much more like an opinion piece, written not from a journalist.
