City prepares to approve budget tonight, including $62 million worth of road and infrastructure projects

Sometimes the rest of us need to sacrifice for decades so that others' luxury SUV's don't ever have to encounter a pothole

City prepares to approve budget tonight, including $62 million worth of road and infrastructure projects

Your post contains too much sound logic and will therefore be ignored by most commenters. The sad fact is the rising majority of Lawrencians don't care about community or sustainability or healthy lifestyles; they just want to be able to drive from their cookie cutter houses to their franchise churches to their bland offices to their corporate retail chains and repeat. The American dream

Yes, keep pouring money into the new boulevards of West Lawrence, ignoring the old streets that actually need it. Because wherever there are rich white people, that must be our priority area for local improvements. It's not like the East (REAL) side of town is what makes Lawrence Lawrence, after all...

City considering $3.5 million swap with KDOT on West Sixth Street

This is just another sign of the impending sprawl that will accompany the Rock Chalk Park development, etc.. They've already rezoned the area West of the SLC on Sixth for retail. In 10 years Lawrence will be East Topeka and West Overland Park. Enjoy it while you can City Commission, as you continue to bend over to developers and let businessmen rape and parcel up our town's perimeter countryside for their private gain, irrespective of any comprehensive plan, the needs of the citizens, or the environmental and cultural impacts. In doing this you are facilitating the ruination our town.

How would you improve downtown Lawrence?

More small businesses, less chain stores. A grocery store, a pharmacy/convenience store, and a 24 hour diner would be nice. Mixed use development in empty lots. Tear down the riverfront mall and make a park/riverwalk. A streetcar would be fantastic. As long as we're fantasizing...

How would you improve downtown Lawrence?

Excellent idea. Too bad it will probably never happen.

City seeking input on new study of bike, transit, and other multimodal transportation options

Is this supposed to contradict my comment in any way? Yes, that is what public transportation does - it carries "many" people (as opposed to say, 1.7 people which was the Average Vehicle Occupancy in the United States as of 2010), a feat that can achieved in communities of almost any size. Thanks for making no valid point whatsoever and wasting both of our time.
