From today’s DP –
With Old Trail coming, we should make sure that the roads in Crozet are usable,â€ Supervisor Sally H. Thomas said.
Supervisor David C. Wyant, whose White Hall district includes Crozet, said his mindset on road improvements has changed.
â€œI’m almost at the point now where the roads are not what I think we should have an emphasis on, but it should be sidewalks and bike trails and maybe mass transit,â€ Wyant said. â€œGet people out of their automobiles.â€ (emphasis mine)
Finally! From a personal and professional aspect, all I have to say is Finally! My feeling is that mass transit may not be in the cards for three years, five years, ten years, maybe even twenty-five years; but I think that it must be considered when looking at the regional transportation needs. I hope that the Alliance for Community Choice in Transportation folks (or any other group interested in this issue) see this and use it as a stepping stone to further this discussion. Anybody who is interested in affecting change should contact his or her respective representative and voice his opinion. George Loper has most of the reps listed (scroll down a bit).
