    2035 Triangle Regional Transit Vision Plan

    In the meantime, Durham residents are filing a lawsuit against the City and GoTriangle over the proposed location of the DOLRT storage/maintenance facility: https://www.newsobserver.com/news/local/article225407280.html
  2. There's also an ongoing discussion at CPCC whether or not to partner with CATS to offer transit passes to students and faculty, in a similar fashion to UNCC.

    Julius Peppers to retire after 17 seasons: https://www.theplayerstribune.com/en-us/articles/julius-peppers-panthers-retirement Great guy; he'll definitely be missed next season.
  4. Given the proximity of the Boylan Heights site to single-family homes in the neighborhood, I don't think 40 stories is realistic there.

    Polk State building at 500 West Trade

    So forgive me for not knowing, but which was the biggest obstruction to preserving and renovating this building: its poor condition or its location within NCDOT's right-of-way?

    Cap over Belk Freeway (277)

    The Interstate system was also not originally conceived to include lines routing through the heart of cities across the country. Induced demand works both ways — build it and they will come, take it away and they will go away. I'm all for tearing up 277, at least partly (the southern half can go, but I don't think it's realistic to remove both halves, especially since the DOT is currently working on the northern half).

    509 South Tryon | Possible Duke Energy Tower

    *561, but that doesn't mean it's actually going to be built.
  8. It just needs a bolt of lightning striking down from the sky, and then it'd be about perfect!

    Charlotte area population statistics

    What really impresses (and confuses) me is the one extra tall spike in Norfolk. It's far taller than anything in North Carolina.

    2035 Triangle Regional Transit Vision Plan

    Apex is making some strides forward for bicycling facilities in the town: https://www.newsobserver.com/news/local/article223925315.html Their plan involves connections to the ATT, and making it easier overall to bike around the town.
