Even if Transit District Zoning Is Updated to Increase Density, All the Construction Imagined in Graphic of Transit District Couldn’t Possibly Take Place, Reader Points Our

WPCNR THE LETTER TICKER. DECEMBER 14, 2016:

Hi John,

I too was at the meeting to unveil the strategic plan for the transit center zone.

Your otherwise accurate report has a misleading caption in the both graphics that have large blue transparent blocks in the downtown area from the transit center and beyond.

Those blocks represent the current allowed density based on current zoning.

They are not a depiction of what is suggested in the plan and, as such, mislead the public into thinking the proposal will have the effect of drastically increasing the density throughout the rest of the city.  I suppose one could argue that the blue is possible, but not in our lifetimes or the lifetime of our children.

Thanks,

David Rhodes
