Might transportation reform be nigh? Heck, just visit Bacon’s Rebellion – there are at least three articles there worth reading. Related reading. The bills are here.

Last night, ASAP hosted a forum to discuss TDRs (Transfer of Development Rights). Before your biases get you all bound up, take the time (2 hours!) to listen to what they have to say; or at least read Charlottesville Tomorrow’s forthcoming summary. It is far better to listen to all sides of the debate first, then come to conclusions, as all sides have their own agendas and interests. Filter these agendas for the truth and, thanks to Cville Tomorrow, go straight to the horse’s mouth.
