08/26/04  Farmers Market . . . Transportation

  SUBJECT:  Farmer's Market  / Transportation
Reference:  Council Meeting.. 8-25-2004

Hello Madam Mayor and Council Representatives:

Will citizens drive to the Farmer's Market?
Downtown / Uptown --- Shopping Alternatives
  Downtown --- Take DART, ride (15 minutes), get harassed by the homeless, shop, return home on DART with packages over shoulder (15 minutes).  Hope that mugging does not transpire in the DART parking lot while looking for the parked vehicle (assuming it has not been stolen.  
  Downtown ---Drive (in traffic),  park ($8.00-$12.00), have a lunch, and return home (in traffic).  Note that parking cost could exceed lunch cost.  
   Uptown Alternative -- Drive to "Big Box" store quickly, park for free in lot patrolled by "Big Box" security,  shop, view a movie,  then return home quickly and safely.  

Which alternative is cheaper, safer, faster?

  Ward politics is the Devil's key to the soul of the city council.  It is how some council members got themselves in trouble in the past.  It is the bait that will get others in trouble in the future. 4/6/8
