Re: “Atlanta according to Dr. Dax

if they didn't tear down those projects, there wouldn't be a SOCIAL ENERGY around Edgewood. you can't have it both ways dude. otherwise, you're not wrong. except about the pedestrians. it's not a green thing, it's about not giving up everything to the cars. walkers should be number one priority. stopping to wait for old lady to cross the street is just nice too.

Re: “MARTA finalizes Clayton pitch while commission clock ticks

Replace the citizens too because we had a chance to fund transit locally/regionally a few years ago, but chose not to. We're the worst. My commute sucks! [does nothing]

Re: “Cobb GOP chairman: Braves transportation fixes can't include 'moving people into Cobb by rail from Atlanta'

@bravesfanincobb. just because it says ATLANTA to the post office, doesn't mean it's there. the city limits don't extend that far. the end.

and that map that's being bandied about shows a good portion of the ticket holders from N.Fulton, Gwinnett, and Buckhead/Dunwoody. All of which have reasonable access to MARTA. Not to mention all the tourists and everyone else who buys single game ticket from around the region.

a high capacity transit option (rail or otherwise) would not just be for the braves stadium btw. that CCT route 10 is the busiest for a reason.

Re: “Portland mayor: 'It'll take generations' to fix metro Atlanta's sprawl

My profession is planning. He's not wrong. ATL is one of the worst planned cities, if you're talking about the entire region. But it also has 20 counties in the region. So you can forget about any sort of regional cooperation. Plus we have no natural boundaries. They took steps that also had unintended consequences (higher housing), but people actually want to visit Portland.

It's is on one end of the spectrum, There are livable, more diverse cities, to be sure. There's no perfect city that has affordable housing, let is livable, yet diverse, yet growing a strong economy, etc etc.

Re: “What's next, Beltline?

lol. that Andisheh piece is funny because each of those other items either had A) kings/slaves/communism involved and/or B) dedicated funding sources. the BL has neither. the timeline is/was 25 years based on full build-out of all transit and trails. As he well knows, this is probably the most complicated project (in terms of coordination/funding) ever undertaken in the region.

we really just finished the transit EIS, so the earliest it could start construction anyway is a few years off.

Re: “Heart transplant

eh....i'd wager that being afraid of the outside world is a hallmark of the OTP lifestyle. quick, we build we need to build a higher fence around the community to stave off the hordes of hobos shambling up from downtown to ruin our begonias!! the mentality is seclusion, rather than inclusion, in my experience.

whenever i'm out there, it's like....is this L-ville or S-ville or D-ville? i'm sorry i can't tell the difference. there are better convenience stores though, i will concede that.
