Wake county just isn't crowded enough to support rail transit outside experts say

http://www.newsobserver.com/2013/11/12/3365566/wake-county-just-isnt-crowded.html

The panelists said Wake County was not likely to attract the federal funding it would need for a light rail line, and it doesn’t have a dense downtown employment center that would support rush-hour commuter trains.

“It’s a mass mode,” Polzin said. “And you need mass to make it work cost-effectively."

But Chapel Hill is going to bet $30 million (with Durham) that we could use for other transit on getting federal and state funding?  Now that's something worth ranting about!

ON OBEY CREEK

I have been observing many e mails today   addressed to the obey creek issues addressed to the mayor and town council on how the many southern village residents  are unhappy with the committee process. I personally as a canidate and a southern village resident  has not been approached on this issue therefore   I think  this issue should be brought up as well as other issues in other central west and Fordham road development as well.  Gary Kahn
