The lightrail has been a tremendous success. The City Council voted unanimously for its extension up through the University area. The streetcar infrastructure has been started and will be a unique and sustainable method of transportation for Charlotteans and visitors to our great city. Do NOT hold this proposal hostage in order to pass your budget!

Er, can SC residents vote?

As a frequent visitor to the QC for a variety of activities, I would think the council would also be interested in hearing from neighboring residents who would use this form of transportation periodically.

I signed but PLEASE be aware that City funding to support a north-south cross-town multi-use commuter trail is also threatened in this CIP. It's a much smaller amount of money and would create an eternal healthy backbone for our city. In fact it should be doubled to add an east-west trail.

Nancy, we agree the Carolina Thread Trail segment is also an important part of the CIP and should be funded as well. We are focused on the streetcar because no other organization is organizing public support for it and because it is what is opposed most strongly by the majority of the Council. Our position is that both should be funded. Both provide more choices for citizens to move around the city.

The choice to eliminate support for the streetcar also eliminated any support for the trail, but I did not hear anyone object. If funded, the north-south trail line item would provide essential CDOT-related infrastructure (bridges and so forth) to speed up the County's greenway system and Carolina Thread Trail by giving it alternative transportation legitimacy as a commuting corridor. I think this is major.

How many of the council have interests in oil companies?
