  1. I appreciate Council Member Riley’s motion, but it’s entirely symbolic. Wake me up when someone commits to putting rail on Lamar before rail to Highland, regardless if East Riverside is first. Or even if someone bothers to address the argument that making it politically impossible to put rail on our best transit corridor before mid-century is a mistake.

  2. Niran got to it before I could (comments were closed the first time). This is the kind of resolution the UTC used to pass all the time which basically is a statement of feelings, nothing more.
