I am not all that sure about doing it this way.

This would be too much like I am going to buy the next computer in 18 months because it has more features than this years model. and the next.....

Go ahead and put NOVA 20 10 in place then with the proviso to add to it.
Those audible signals are quite pricey. It will take a few fiscal years to come up with that kind of money.

I think you are right. There is no reason why we can't have side walks and transfer points which can be safe for all. I agree we should stick to what we want with in reason get the city to hold off on the noba20 plan until safety is granded. ----- Original Message ----- From: "Easy Talk" <easytalk@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>

William as you said

if we had waited for every bus stop to be accessible, we wouldn't have a bus
line today.

This is true and has been a problem in Tallahassee for at least 20 years and most likely since the original bus system was started. Now is the time to
change that.  We as blind people have tried for years to get the city to
become more pedestrian friendly and now we have an ally in Star Metro which gives us more power. If this is done right, we will have a bust system to be proud of but the City is going to have to step up to the plate and make
the city more pedestrian friendly.

Star Metro may be able to implement the new system with out much additional
cost but the city is going to have to spend some money for side walks and
safe transfer points.  If they aren't willing to do this then we need to
stand against the Nova2010 plan until they do.

Chip,

I can see that there is ideas and concessions to be made on both sides,
but
if we had waited for every bus stop to be accessible, we wouldn't have a
bus

line today. I don't want you to think every harsh word I say was leveled
at you, but when I asked for suggestions about which transfers needed
audible signals, I got suggestions that were not even on the routs and
suggestions about where the lines should go.   Now I'm not saying
suggestions cant be helpful, but this has become so fragmented that it
could

cost more than burning finger tips on the keyboard. I would bet you have
to compromise sometimes when decisions are being made about databases.
We
are all going to have to give a little, but I don't want the ones who yell
the loudest to step on anyone who is just a little gentler and kinder.
I'm

not saying I am the most quiet in this, but there are people coming to me
saying they want nothing to do with it and all this bickering.

I would not be surprised if this plan goes forward, but I would rather
make
a difference and help shape it as it goes along, rather than throwing the
baby out with the bath water.

I truly am glad Erica called me at the beginning of this and said, we
might
disagree about this, but lets not let it ruin our friendship.   Senitors
and

congressmen disagree and they do in fact get along. The ones that can't
get along wonder why they are a lone horse.

What will be the next issue to come before us. Even when it does, there will be two sides and some will get over it and some wont. I am going to
deal with this issue the best I can and with the next one too.   As for
friendship, I take that very seriously and would not let one post come
between you and me.

William


PS

I am keeping this out in the open where it started and I won't sneek
around
behind anyone's back.
