Dear Chip,

Not true, as I have been at a couple of meetings where Star Metro has been in attendance, but, I guess because the mall is private property, it can't face the mall to continue to allow the buses to pull up closer to the entrance.

That's exactly right Darla, it comes down to a safety issue which is
being ignored.

And, you know, while Mr. Garrison sort of  implied the mall had a
problem with buses coming in, he didn't come out and say that, and so
I'm not sure if the mall does have a problem, or we're simply meant to
think they do.  It's a point which needs clarification, and one we need
to write our commissioners about, *after* the plan is proposed, urging
them not to accept it.  right now, if you write a city commissioner
before the plan is proposed, your comments are simply forwarded on to
StarMetro, who apparently aren't listening to safety issues much.

As I recall, there aren't sidewalks at Governor Square Mall
on which to
walk; I can't think of many things more unsafe than having to
traverse a
large parking lot while competing with the noise from the
Parkway, and more
people than you think, simply pull out of their parking space without
looking for anyone, so I believe that Star Metro needs to
have the buses go
into the mall, as they currently do.

If the mall has a problem with that, let them have shuttles
from the bus
stop to the mall entrance and back.
