What do we think about Division St.?
UPDATED: 11AM to add a note of caution.
The results from the MyWHaT straw-poll are in!
In response to the question concerning the Division St./parkland ballot initiative — “if the election was today, how would you vote?”– MyWHaT readers pass the initiative 65% to 35%.*
Myself? I’m prepared to err on the side of yes. There are concerns about process, shortsightedness, narrow scope, lack of political will to declare a shared vision with teeth, pandering, alienation of key constituents, a lack of trust…faith…fortitude…abilities, and that it will unleash an army of zombies upon the city. Still, as of today, I’d vote yes.
In a future post, I may elaborate on some of these concerns, but for now, I’m content understanding that a majority–regardless of mode choice, simply want better access and improved quality of life throughout the community–Division St. included
