This Central Corridor plan has always been a terrible idea from the start.

I am a liberal, but agree with the Republicans and merchants on this.

It will destroy many small businesses along University Ave and be destructive to the U of MN as well.

Gov Dayton, please do all you can to halt this ill planned idea.

If President Erkel's Federal Transit Administration say there will be no adverse impact, there will ne no impact. Besides, St. Paul is flush with cash. They don't have any budgetary concerns.

They base this on...looking at an aerial photo of St Paul while meeting and dining on taxpayer money at a fancy Washington restaurant?

Folks on the ground here have a much different prospective and opinion. They won't get a lot of foot traffic from a train that stops every eight blocks. Just crossing the street will be problematic. But wait, they'll build million dollar (handicap accessible) bridges so you can cross every two blocks or so. More government waste.

The answer to your questions is AGENDA 21. Get it out of your city now! It will financially devastate communities. Educate yourself NOW! Go to Youtube and search for "Agenda 21 for Dummies" and go to the website "Freedom Advocates" to learn how to get it out of here! Tell the businessowners along University Avenue that their attorneys need to know about this.
Right now, in your town and neighborhood, policies are being implemented that will ultimately eliminate your freedoms and destroy your way of life. You need to know what's going on to stop this process. Many town officials are selling us out to global regional development with help from the International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives (ICLEI): Local Governments for Sustainability. ICLEI is used as one of the mechanisms to undo the political recognition of unalienable rights.
