Questions raised at recent public hearing

The PI reports on some of the issues brought up at last night's public hearing
Michael Taylor of the Friends of the Monorail group estimated that the system would reach capacity west of the West Seattle Bridge within five years because the bridge would carry a single rail...

Queen Anne neighborhood residents were concerned that price negotiations meant stations would be "cookie-cutters," not fitting their neighborhood...

A private structural engineer, Jon Magnusson, questioned why the proposed station designs don't include platforms for switches, which could allow future expansion of the system.
Some serious issues were raised, I'm glad Seattle's residents are keeping their eyes on the whole picture, amidst SMP's current financial problems.
