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
