I never said I was against opening the station--I think most in Candlelight want it open ASAP. It's Brown that's holding it hostage in order to ram through what he wants without change. And the bit about the pumice plant, duh! Of course everyone is glad to see that ugly thing go, but we don't want it replaced with another eyesore. This issue is about OVER development--not just no to development. Some of you are so quick to jump to conclusions just for the sake of deriding others you know nothing about. Maybe you wouldn't mind me opening up an an adult video/liquor store next to your residence--NIMBY. The true NIMBY live on the north side of town. Again how many business parks do you see off of Tano or perhaps Mansion Ridge? And the airport comment is just stupid. Original residents of Candlelight were promised that Zia would never go through, and now it's a virtual interstate without any sound walls like, again, you see on the north side.
Alright, now it's the developer-is-always-right peanut gallery's turn.
Every part and everyone that has been in SF for 20 years or so has seen change and has been impacted by it. I can remember when Candlelight was built. While in High School and it did not have an effect on me one way or another. I can also remember when Quail Run was built. Since I lived on East Zia, it did have an effect on me; mice, traffic, dust. But it turned out to be a good project. In many ways, change happens less abrutly, and takes time to see it. Take the gentrification of the east side; by the time anyone noticed, it was done. Same thing is happening south and west of Rodeo in the Airport area. The point is, Mr. Brown's project looks exciting, well thought out and would make a GOOD CHANGE for the area in conjunction with the RR. Remember the adage: "better the devil you know than the one you don't."

Let the train stop at Zia and St Francis; ignore the neighborhood association......half of them haven't even lived here long enough to warrant an opinion.
And exactly what are the results of your poll? What is the average number of years people have lived there? What is the average age? Average number per household? Average income? Average cost of home? Average number of children? How many are retired? How many smoke and what do they smoke and how many have grass growing in their back yard? Huh, Huh?? Take your arrogance elsewhere.

there is now a residency requirement for having an opinion? What an idiotic statement. An intelligence test might be more appropriate - institute it here first.
Of course you are completely all wet about the neighborhood composition, anyway.
I wish our goofy city council would have made a law that stated that anyone moving to SF over the past thirty years had to live here at least 10 years before they could "express" themselves all over our neighborhoods. It seems like those with little vested in the community. You know the ones, people that have been here a short time like the artist dude at the Railyard and practically all of the Historical Review Board. Its a relatively small group but they carry a SCREACHING VOICE; "what about how this is going to affect ME, ME, ME, ME!" From the NIMBY no more growth crowd, to the socialist, prius driving everyone, legal or not, gay or straight, welcome to all- inclusive Santa Fe. "Mind if I bring some friends" so we can picket Walmart and "educate" the locals about why Walmart is the Evil Empire; then we will go after Thornburg, your biggest and best paying employer that is a nasty capitalist; then we will go after the Catholic Church, who has had toooo much influence on Santa Fe for 500 years and it is time for you uneducated locals that can't think for yourself to come out of the dark ages and see the light......thank God you got here, just in the knick of time.

really stupid. This shows how isolated from the rest of America some people are. The American ideal is about mobility, participation, equality, interchange of ideas and working things out within a democratic system. There is no special knowledge or priveledge that comes as a birthright.

Deal with it.

And if your stupid scenario was reality, what would have been the effect in this case being discussed? Tell us. I'm interested in the ignorance of your answer.
