« Pringle Square's Perfect Parking Plan -- great cartoon | Main | Super cute 4 year old dancing "gangnam style" »

September 08, 2013


I's like to suggest closing the at-grade crossing at State Street and replacing it with a pedestrian bridge for foot traffic. At the same time the car traffic to the park area will be provided through the new at-grade crossing with an easement through the new development.

Speaking of lying why don't you write a post about how your friends lied to the Statesman Journal when they took their ad out then dragged it out past deadline hoping it would get published without the usual vetting. Do you have the integrity to call foul on your own people Brian or will you "moderate" this comment into the bit bucket?

All's fair, I have no idea what you're talking about. I also have no idea why I should care what happened, if anything, between the Statesman Journal and the Pringle Square Access group.

Let's see... how does what you said have anything to do with the developer wanting to get access to its private development through a private park?

I don't believe any of the City Councillor questions about Pringle Square tonight had to do with a Pringle Square Access ad in the newspaper. So again, why should I care?

No one likes grade crossings - especially railroads. Since the Pringle Square property has only a single track with a short spur track running through it, and the line likely has very little rail traffic on it that is not scheduled, ODOT would probably grant a variance without too much hesitation. Another grade crossing would not constitute an additional safety hazard if the situation is looked at rationally.
