Some of the proposals recommended by the commission were leaked via various outlets such as the New York Times & Tri-State Transportation Campaign’s “Mobilizing The Region” blog. I opined on a couple of the proposals but planned on doing so more in depth when I had a chance to view the entire report. Unfortunately I have not had the chance to read the report completely due to business matters occupying my time.
However in the meantime, you can check out an entry by Sewell Chan in the New York Times City Room blog which got the reaction to the proposal from some elected officials, local leaders, & transit advocates. You can check it out by clicking here. I also recommend checking out a breakdown of where the local newspapers stand on the proposals. You can view a detailed breakdown by checking out Benjamin’s latest Second Avenue Sagas entry.
I will try my best to offer my full thoughts on the proposals within the next 24-36 hours.
