    This is Kevin Davis.  My wife, who many of you know is Laurie Davis.

     

        This was an attempt to take the various concerns and put them all in 
one place for the TAC to have during and after the Working group meets.  I know 
that not everyone thinks the same on this group.  I am one of them.  I am 
trying hard not to put in my own opinions in this listing.  I am basically for 
the new system despite the shortcomings.  Now, if there is no real objections, 
I will take Erica's corrections and clean this up and submit it to the TAC for 
considerations along with the rest of the information that others on the 
TAC(Transportation Advisory Committee) have been collecting form other interest 
groups, and it will be seriously reviewed.  If on the other hand, you feel it 
is just not enough, and you'd prefer to go to the commission on your own, 
individually, then by all means let me know and I won't bother.  I will 
endeavor to vote with what information is in front of us at the time.

     

        Let me know, and Y'all have a nice day.

    Kevin Davis

    Sure William, you're right.  I thought however he was just going to list any

    concern that anyone may have mentioned.

     

    Kevin, was that the idea?

    openions.

          Is what I've written a sufficient representation of the views?   I

    want to make sure I am representing and characterizing this correctly.  Let

    me know, thanks.

          Yes, Kevin, I too would appreciate it if you would provide a summary

    at the public meetings, of the issues raised here.

                This is the first I've heard from anyone concerning my post.

    What I am offering to do, as a member of the City Commissions Transportation

    Advisory Committee, is to present a consolidated statement from this group

    to that board.  This will be added to the results of the working group

    planned for January, that will also include discussions on all of the topics

    listed.  I will not present this unless I have a green light from the

    members of this group.  I am not stating my views, but those of the

    TABI/Blind community.

     

                 

     

                          Y'all let me know what you want to do.  I would

    recommend doing it soon so the statement can be read and added to other

    materials for the TAC to review.

                Dear Kevin,

     

                 

     

                That would probably be a good idea, but some may think

    something like you are stating, might be slanted.  I actually believe Star

    Metro understands the problems very well; it is the other city departments

    who need to get on the same page to get the APS's, sidewalks, better

    lighting, etc., and we should probably make our views known by addressing

    the city commissioners, Mayor Marks, city manager, etc.

     

                 

     

                Darla

                      Good Afternoon All, 

     

                         I have been monitoring the discussions for and

    against NOVA 2010, first through Laurie, and now I have joined TABI.  I

    wonder if some of you would be willing to help me get all of the points,

    both pro and con, put together in one posting.  I will then forward that to

    the Transportation Advisory Committee(TAC), of which I am a part.  The TAC

    is very interested in the safety issues involved, and have been reviewing

    these even before NOVA 2010 was presented to us.

     

                         We are a part of the city commission, and not a

    part of StarMetro.  We are due to make a recommendation one way or the other

    to the commission after the first of the year, and I want to make sure all

    of the information that can be is put on the table. 

     

                      I may not be perfect, but I am trying to be neutral

    and represent the interests if the visually impaired on the TAC.  

     

                      You should know that the new system provides Laurie

    and I with some VERY positive benefits.  That interest is only one piece

    that I present to the TAC. If you are willing, a consolidated list of your

    views would be very helpful to me.  Let me know what you think.  

     

                      There is a little known "be attitude"  Blessed be

    the flexible, for they will bend and not break:-).  

     

                       

     

                      Hope to hear from you all soon

     

                      Kevin Davis
