  • It is disappointing that though the public uses the Capital Center area in a variety of ways (the rr station, streets, station park etc) there is no “public comment” on the Agenda so that the Commission can hear fom the public. In contrast, I know that RIPTA, the State Planning Council, the Transportation Advisory Committee,the Board of Governors for Higher Ed, all have a public comment section at each meeting. In general, I think citizen activists should seek the right to address public bodies on their agendas routinely.

  • Oh, great.

    Bollards every three feet just like the Federal buildings at Kennedy Plaza.

    So how will the AMTRAK security personnel and all the other people who get to park in front of the entrance to the station get to park there? Removable bollards? Hate to inconvenience them.
