I did try to keep this basically as a list.  I just tried to clean it up so
it would make for easy reading and sum up the overall view at the end.
Erica sent me a version with corrections that I will get to later this week.
I have family activities most of this week, but it should all work out.

HI Kevin,  Thanks for what you are doing and I think you are right for
listing all the concerns.  I think this is good and isn't a vote on each
concern but a statement of what individuals have which is our right as tax
payers.

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.

 

      Kevin

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

at the public meetings, of the issues raised here.

 

       

 

       

 

      thank you.

            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.

                  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
