Was this a convenient time for you to participate in this virtual mtg? Or, would you have liked a different time?
Matt Hayes, Alta
56:53
Mike, if only we could have found a way to provide virtual/actual pizza, the time is fine......
Mike rutkowski
57:24
Very True
Bob Matheny
01:00:16
Not a good time for me. I will have to leave early since I do have another meeting.
Mike rutkowski
01:00:37
Bob, thank you for participating
Bob Matheny

I think that depends on age and lifestyle
Karl Warkomski, TRTP Mfg
01:01:53
predicated on the price of fuel
Scott Lane, JS Lane
01:02:36
Longer commutes may be accelerated due to COVID-19 fallout.
Don Berryann
01:03:28
I believe people will be willing to have longer duration commutes but will be less tolerant of high stress (traffic congestion/pollution) if they have a choice
Smith Raynor
01:03:31
I agree that it is dependent on age and lifestyle too--but this area will appeal to those folks who want to live in the country, but work in the city
Matt Hayes, Alta
01:03:59
For those who want to participate and provide input to the ongoing Great Trails State Plan process, visit this site: https://www.ncdot.gov/divisions/bike-ped/great-trails-state/Pages/get-involved.aspx
Karl Warkomski, TRTP Mfg

purchase conservation easements and turn over to land trusts
Bonnie Parker, CAMPO
01:05:11
Our watershed is a critical resource. Gotta keep protecting.
RickardA
01:06:24
walkable is nice but bikeable ok too
Don Belk
01:06:32
This could very well represent the last opportunity to preserve significant open space in this region.
Smith Raynor
01:06:34
It's nice to have walkable amenities, but not at the expense of open space
Scott Lane, JS Lane
01:06:40
It's difficult for some people to know how great it is to be able to walk to a lot of things from their home since they've often not had that experience.
Smith Raynor
01:10:07
My answer to time in congestion reflects pre-covid situation
Bonnie Parker, CAMPO
01:10:11
Commute is longer; actual congestion closer to 15-20 min.
Matt Hayes, Alta
01:10:42
Good point Smith. Generally speaking, answer the questions with pre-COVID as the "now"
RickardA
01:11:14
We may be able to look at Streetlight data to see what typical commute patterns look like in the NEAS area
Karl Warkomski, TRTP Mfg
01:13:14
the amount of garbage along the 56 makes it look like a 3rd world country.
RickardA
01:14:33
C options besides a car
Stuart Poulsen
01:14:41
There needs to be a distinction and balance here between "desires/wish for" and the actual costs of providing initial costs and on going costs---whos going to pay for this, and a balance of housing affordability and the cost of commercial development.
Scott Lane, JS Lane
01:15:03
Agree with RickardA….
Jason Brown
01:15:08
I agree with Alex as well

01:16:20
But the major corridors may not be able to be upgraded. Two lane may have strategic upgrades.
Karl Warkomski, TRTP Mfg
01:18:16
I have never experienced anything like capital Blvd - and I went to school in California.
RickardA
01:18:28
major corridors (US and NC) routes have much greater funding advantages over 2 lane roads
Smith Raynor
01:18:34
Please include the Zebulon Greenways plan too.
Karl Warkomski, TRTP Mfg
01:18:42
what is the delay?
Mike rutkowski
01:19:38
I think there are some Bond money that has been identified specifically for trail enhancements
Karl Warkomski, TRTP Mfg
01:21:05
could we charge impact fees to those companies who could have employees work from home but refuse?
Bonnie Parker, CAMPO
01:21:22
Personally, comfort is the foundation of my mapping for every bike ride, whether for recreation or to shopping and dining with kiddos.
Charlie Cangialosi
01:22:36
Walking/biking will increase but I believe more cities will see better $s spent in the light rail mode.
Don Berryann
01:24:04
the future activity strongly depends on safety of biking/walking and connectivity to jobs/schools/shopping
Karl Warkomski, TRTP Mfg
01:26:05
can we not ask questions?
Smith Raynor
01:26:17
I wanted an all of the above choice
Jaquasha Colón, Stantec
01:26:50
Karl, you can ask questions in the chat
Karl Warkomski, TRTP Mfg
01:26:51
ALL
Debbie Gallimore
01:27:00
Agreed
Don Berryann
01:29:09
transit growth will depend on the quality of transit
Karl Warkomski, TRTP Mfg
01:29:21
please tell me where light rail is in the NE section?
Mike rutkowski
01:31:03
No where yet
RickardA
01:31:21
Karl - in our current long-range transportation plan there is no light rail service in the triangle
Mike rutkowski
01:31:22
Charlotte has had huge success
Brandon Watson - CAMPO
01:33:06
the neas update is looking at passenger rail potential though, there is a northern corridor (s-Line that NCDOT is currently working on) and eastern corridor through Knightdale, Wendell, and zebulon
Karl Warkomski, TRTP Mfg
01:36:07
how do we make the rural areas unattractive to developers?
Timothy Tresohlavy, Stantec
01:36:50
Wetlands! Definitely not attractive for development.
Karl Warkomski, TRTP Mfg
01:37:12
what obstacles can we utilize as residents to prevent mega developments from happening in the rural areas, given the roadway realities?
Timothy Tresohlavy, Stantec
01:37:19
Voluntary Agricultural Districts (VAD) too
Charlie Cangialosi
01:37:44
reduce high density developing to protect open space
Karl Warkomski, TRTP Mfg
01:37:51
protests? endangered species seed mix?
Don Berryann
01:38:12
Yay to Amanda for giving us more choices!
Bonnie Parker, CAMPO
01:38:42
Love these elements, but... Important to keep people of all abilities in mind with placemaking elements - chairs in walkway, lighting for uneven sidewalks, etc.
Mike rutkowski
01:39:25
Thx Don!!
Scott Lane, JS Lane
01:41:09
Number of workers in NEAS employed in agriculture, farming, and forestry in 2017? Guesses?
Karl Warkomski, TRTP Mfg
01:41:41
SMALL AFFORDABLE HOMES LARGE LOTS
Christy Rosas
01:41:54
WIth COvid, more people will co habitat with parents and grandparents
Bonnie Parker, CAMPO
01:43:32
Eager to know the answer, Scott!
Scott Lane, JS Lane
01:44:40
The answer is....0.2%.
Karl Warkomski, TRTP Mfg
01:44:43
no, people don’t want to drive
Mike rutkowski
01:44:56
Exactlt
Mike rutkowski
01:45:01
exactly
Karl Warkomski, TRTP Mfg
01:45:57
big box, really?
Karl Warkomski, TRTP Mfg
01:46:08
you mean retail vomit
Bonnie Parker, CAMPO
01:48:00
