DART


Even the scaled down CottonbeltĀ proposal that DART staff will present to the board tonight still endangers DART’s bond rating continues to miss the point about what the priority of a project like the Cottonbelt should be. If it should be built, which is not a settled question at all, it should be when the ridership demand is much higher and when the community opposition is much lower. If the feds, the transit-loving feds, won’t finance even part of your project, it’s because they think it’s a dog. We need to take the hint on Cottonbelt, finish a subterranean D2 on an expedited basis, and then watch how much faster we qualify for money for projects like the Cottonbelt once system performance improves.
