|".... go to Cleveland. See what a mess it is."|
Local Enclave blogger Mike Byrd attended the West End AMP meeting and reports on how the MTA almost lost control of their carefully orchestrated dog and pony show. Below are excerpts from his report:
Tonight's Midtown transit "open house" or "workshop" (or whatever officials are deciding to call it at the moment) nearly busted out into a full blown public hearing on the east-west connector after one person in the audience asked an Amp engineer who was finishing up at the podium if he would take questions from the floor. .....someone else in the crowd spoke up and asked the engineer to use a microphone so everyone could hear him. The engineer declined to grab the mike and expressed his own wish that all questions be expressed at the tables. .....a good part of the vision seems already achieved. Haggling over the details at specific intersections does not seem like "visioning" to me.Read the full report at this link.
