    I wish there was some way for the "locals" to express frustration about land-use here, like they're able to for residential planning.

    This is great news!

    Piedmont Triad International Airport (GSO)

    I've been away from here for a while! I'm in NYC now and I miss my hometown a bit! Will that 3rd runway help out in counteracting the decline that is going on at PTI? I wish I could fly right into GSO without spending so much money!

    Piedmont Triad International Airport (GSO)

    Here's that Link. It actually refers to Greensboro. Here's the original Jet Blue Press Release with all 44 cities.

    Piedmont Triad International Airport (GSO)

    Well I actually saw an article about this. I'll find the link soon. They said that JetBlue was "going back to basics" and going to have flights out of their original 44 city plan. They were not expecting the success they've had, which led them to branch out as much as they did. Fuel costs and everything else has forced them to cut down on expansion. They said since the population was denser in the East, they knew they would be very successful in their original 44 cities. The times are forcing them back to that plan. CLT, RDU, and GSO were all included on that list. They were also chosen because of the high cost carriers that were prevalent at each airport.

    Heart of the Triad

    That would be absolutely fabulous. Finally, the Dynamo (women's soccer) would have somewhere professional to play. Professional soccer would be great. It is absolutely perfect for the area. I went to NW Guilford, and they had a great soccer team...they also have a Lacrosse team. One of only a few in Guilford and Forsyth. The proximity to the field is perfect. As a side note, they just announced some National Amateur Golf Tournament will be played at Bryan Park. I wish they could have some kind of rail service linking the area with WS, GSO, HP downtowns. Isnt there already some kind of rail service proposed from A & T to Hanes Mall?

    The Dash Downtown Ballpark

    Accidentally hit it twice...how do you remove?

    The Dash Downtown Ballpark

    I think that would be really great. I was born and raised in GSO. Whenever we'd go to DT Winston, I would just look around in awe. It was so foreign to me, and that's exactly why I liked it. The park would definitely spur development on top of what's already going on. I wish they could link DT GSO and DT WS with some kind of rail service.

    Greensboro Coliseum Complex thread

    I disagree. I don't think the museum would have to be directly on top of the coliseum. If people are in GSO to go to the coliseum, they probably won't mind riding DT. Is the coliseum even really that far from DT? You can see DT from the coliseum and that's good enough for me. I do think, though, that Lee and High Point Rd need more attention.

    Downtown Greensboro Developments

    Which is all the more reason to build Downtown to accomodate more foot traffic. The people who don't choose to come downtown right now obviously don't see anything there that really draws them in. I'm all for a big name store coming DT, but until then, we have to utilize what we have. I don't think there should be more parking lots for each store either. What I like about Greensboro is that you can live in the suburbs and have your car, or live downtown, own one, and not drive it as much. Each person can choose which way they want to live, and it really doesn't take much effort to venture into either lifestyle. There's plenty of parking for cars. You might just have to get up and walk a little further than you normally would to get where you want to go. The future (to me), in DT GSO is more of a pedestrian friendly atmosphere, and there will be plenty of residents to support that lifestyle. That will bring in more variety over time as far as retail and transportation is concerned.

    Downtown Greensboro Developments

    I'm actually back home in Greensboro visiting and decided to make it downtown. I am absolutely flabbergasted at how much has changed. It's very, very different to see it in pictures than to experience it in person. I absolutely love it. As a matter of fact, I'm in the Public Library posting this. I went to Southside and absolutely fell in love! I simply cannot believe I just "walked" over on MLK. Out of all the new restaurants and clubs, I think I like Much/Heaven the most. Although, I haven't been to Hemingway's yet, which looks absolutely amazing.
