Public Meeting #1: held January 12, 2010

Comments from the January 12 Public Meetings:

"The initial expense is more, but in the long run, there is much more income-generating opportunity."

"Connecting to transit and future transit is the lifeblood for this system."

"Allow for bike carry-on."

"Engage major institutions with sustainability goals, such as Colorado College, Fort Carson and University of Colorado at Colorado Springs."

"Engage regional planning efforts by the Economic Development Corporation, Operation 6035, the City Sustainability Committee, etc. to show how the study supports efforts already underway."

Be sure any follow-on "environmental studies determine noise, lighting and crime impacts on neighborhoods."

"Thank you for having a vision and telling the story of possibility during a difficult time for our city.  The Colorado College students will utilize this to the utmost extent."
