COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT: Bridging the Busway - now what?

Posted by Elwin Green on June 14, 2012 at 1:20 AM

So, this has happened really quietly: the final version of the Bridging the Busway plan has been released:

More importantly, it's available a variety of ways. You can download it from the Bridging the Busway website. You can download it from Councilman Ricky V. Burgess's new and improved website. Or you can order a physical copy via Lulu, for $35.80.

Here's a look at the table of contents:

So what happens with it now? Good question, and I'll be back with answers from (at minimum) Councilman Burgess and Operation Better Block Inc. executive director Jerome Jackson.

Meanwhile, I encourge you to check it out for yourself. It's 149 pages, but a lot of that is photos or drawings. Because I was involved in creating the text - both by my participation in the BTB steering committee and by actually doing some editing - I dare not comment on it directly. So instead I'll ask you folks to look it over - read as much or as little of it as you like - and to give some feedback.

Does it make sense to you? Is it clear, or confusing? Does it encourage you, or worry you? Do you believe that anything it describes can actually happen? Do you want anything it describes to actually happen?
