Re: “New Performance Venue Planned in Thriving Downtown Winooski

This is a great addition to Winooski. Parking obviously needs to be addressed before the plan can be approved. Are more parking garages in store for downtown Winooski? Let's hope for more sustainable green infrastructure and build these developments the SMART way!

I see Winooski becoming a great downtown destination, especially with the riverfront and great new development. We just need to plan smart and correct the transportation issue. Vermonters are afraid of anything more complex than a stop sign, so planners need to introduce user-friendly transportation options for the rural dwellers who visit the city.

Perhaps it's time for a light rail system to combat traffic?
Downtown Church Street --> Winooski via Colchester Ave?
Then expand a rail system going up and down Pine Street & North Ave with smart Transit-Oriented Development

The Burlington metro area has an opportunity to create a transit-sustainable city before traffic becomes a major issue. Educate the "urbanites" about the benefits of public transit and reach out the the student population and surrounding schools!
