brainstormer..........good idea! Putting JTA into City Hall would be lots cheaper then building them a new office complex they neither need nor the taxpayers wish to pay for! Plenty of other options with existing Bldg's that have not been discussed or pursued........Fed Bldg, old JEA Bldg.............barges floating on the St Johns!

If any of you attend this meeting PLEASE ask the powers that be what the hell do they have against rail. I just cant understand the thinking of the so called leader of this city. It is a fact if you have rail you have development. As Forrest gump would say they go together like peas and carrots



Samiam,

I totally agree with you and my friends who supports rail. For approximately seven years, I have tried to get the so-called powers to be to see the bigger picture, cost effectiveness, and beneficial effects that the return of the rail would have in our city. We are so far behind until we think we are ahead because we do not see anyone around us, not realizing that everyone left us a long time ago. As an elected official, I am at the stage of out right disgust and unbelief of the mentality of holding this city back instead of moving forward. Being that I have said that I am an elected official, I will use my real name when the fellows help me to make the change. I am Councilwoman Glorious Johnson. IT'S RAIL TIME!!!!!!! So let's RUMBLE!!!!! Choo!!! Choo!!!! ChOOOO!!!!!

OK Vickie................welcome to the Metro Jacksonville Blog......and yes  I agree! The powers that be have no idea about much of anything which has been proven over and over again! Mass transit equals rail, as one small part of the transportation pie and the powers that be JUST DON"T GET IT! I do have some 2x4's available but I don't think it will help the GOB Network get the message...........if they can't make money off of it, they ain't interested kid!

I want to throw this out there, as it is a peeve of mine...
But what about expansion of the mono-rail?

Wouldn't be awesome instead of tearing up roads for rails, we continued the system to include the Sports Complex, Riverside, Springfield and Murray Hill?
Maybe eventually, to the beaches?

It is really the Fail Rail- a giant visible waste of money.
I worked downtown and lived in Riverside and had to drive, and that is sad.
I would have paid a DOLLAR each way to not have paid for parking, and the use of gas.

Why is this not on the table?

GoldenEst82, welcome to MJ.

You may get a potential wave of responses when you bring up the $ky-high-way on MJ.  This is one of the most discussed subjects we have here.  I suggest, to save time, you might want to review numerous threads in the Forum board under Transportation, Mass Transit, and Infrastructure.  If you sort the thread by subject, views, or replies, you will find top listings reviewing this subject ad infinitum.  Pros and cons.  Draw your own conclusions.

Happy reading and we will see you again in a few days  ;)
Hey!  Whatever happened to just plain ol' COMMON SENSE!!
