Memory Lane: Last February, TC neighbors made a stir with over 200 comments sent to the city commission in support of making the 2010 8th St. reconstruction a complete project. Many MyWHaT readers shared their comments here, where we published pull quotes from them in two parts.
The community wasn’t able to change the scope of that project and it’s questionable if we changed the attitude in how to approach future projects. Still, even if the impacts were intangible, notice was taken that there is an active, engaged and articulate public that wants to move forward in building the city we need for the next 30 years, not the one we had 30 years ago. We need more of the energy that these comments represent. See you in 2011.
Letters & public comments concerning 8th Street were a highlight of 2010. We get it: "Communities that surrender to cars do not thrive."—
