  1. The stop light is still at 96th because the state DOT still "controls" that intersecton, not because there were no funds or money ran out. If you notice, there were also stop lights installed at the interchange with 465 when they re-did that, which was well after the Keystone roundabouts were complete. It boiled down to poor planning, and no desire by the state to spend more money for what they viewed as not being necessary.

  2. An all-local, bus-only, mostly hub and spoke, bare-bones system is expected to "prove itself" to the entire metro area that is doesn't even serve outside of Marion County in order to establish a system that is completely different and much improved? That is an outrageous expectation and extraordinarily poor comparison from what is to what would be. In all honesty, with the small amount of change to provide a city-wide of service that IndyGo receives, they do quite a lot. Indy has a Metro area of nearly 2 million, a transit expansion and the addition of Bus Rapid Transit lines to the suburbs is long overdue. Only one line could still possibly be DMU rail (Green Line), and that comes at an extraordinarily low cost compared to the kinds of roadway expansions that we would have to do to accommodate our city's population growth both in the urban core and northern suburbs. However, that line could become BRT. Basing total transit demand solely off of the two express bus departures per day against a service that would leave every ten minutes at peak hours and every fifteen minutes off-peak is ridiculous, as well. There are a lot of cities that are similar to Indy which have made successful transit improvements that improved the overall quality of life for the residents and attracted business developments in private dollars that exceeded the costs of constructing the lines. Example: Cleveland constructed the HealthLine BRT for $200 million. As a result, $5.8 billion in private investment has occurred along the line and population growth is occurring within the corridor. Other cities include Austin, Charlotte, Salt Lake City, Denver, Eugene, the list goes on. Investments in a strong, efficient transit network is an investment in the city as a whole and the surrounding community. It's important to remember that ALL forms of transportation must be subsidized, the automobile is no exception.

  3. Why not change up the layout entirely? i think players need a bigger buffer zone to recover when heading out of bounds under the basket. press and fans are important but don't need to be on the court!

  4. The east side does have potential...and I have always thought Washington Scare should become an outlet mall. Anyone remember how popular Eastgate was? Well, Indy has no outlet malls, we have to go to Edinburgh for the deep discounts and I don't understand why. Jim is right. We need a few good eastsiders interested in actually making some noise and trying to change the commerce, culture and stereotypes of the East side. Irvington is very progressive and making great strides, why can't the far east side ride on their coat tails to make some changes?

  5. Boston.com has an article from 2010 where they talk about how Interactions moved to Massachusetts in the year prior. http://www.boston.com/business/technology/innoeco/2010/07/interactions_banks_63_million.html The article includes a link back to that Inside Indiana Business press release I linked to earlier, snarkily noting, "Guess this 2006 plan to create 200-plus new jobs in Indiana didn't exactly work out."
