Good point about the short distance from my new home
to the park-and-ride lot. I would prefer to ride my
bike, and plan on attempting to do so. Unfortunately,
the only route that leads to the lot is a narrow
two-lane road without any shoulders and with
irrigation ditches on both sides. Plus, the speed
limit is 50 MPH. Bicycling along this route appears
to be potentially deadly.
Once I'm into the new home, I plan on petitioning the
city of Phoenix to place a bus stop sign one mile from
my house. The bus currently goes by the particular
intersection where I want the stop placed, but it does
not stop there because it is in the middle of
I do not feel that I am supporting the development of
greenfield lands by moving to this subdivision. There
are new homes being built in much more remote places
around here. Did you know that metropolitan Phoenix
is growing by more than 100,000 people per year? Do
you have any suggestions on how to accomodate that
amount of people without developing along the fringes
of the urban area? This is an issue that doesn't
appear to have any solution, other than putting a
moratorium on all new development.
