Old North End neighbors have a commitment to maintain their historic properties and medians and to promote the family friendly community we all call home.
Our current transit system (routes 9 and 19) is scaled appropriately for our region, but it is inappropriately centralized on two neighboring streets, resulting in distant walks for riders from east and west regions of ONEN and Patty Jewett. The planned Transit Corridor will have no benefits, substantial costs for our residents, and potentially existential risks to our neighborhood.
City/County plan calls for vast expansion of transit on our residential streets, to serve as connection of major distant urban nodes
Poor accessibility to local riders
Numerous externalities associated with transit vehicle
Noise, transit stations, exhaust, traffic risks, loss of property value
Drawbacks potentially concentrated on one street, violating ONEN Master Plan
Substantial increase in vehicles and remote riders
Transit corridor implemented on I-25 and/or rail right-of-way
