It is not enough to simply criticize, acknowledgment that a project could have been better integrated or that a policy could have been more encompassing is the first step in being proactive to working toward a better solution, a better future. If we want transportation to be more effective, more sustainable we need to become part of that dialogue to ensure that this happens. Your attendance at this and other programs especially when the public’s input is encouraged is critical.
