Plans to Narrow Lanes Advanced Despite Opposition
A resounding message of opposition to one local government agency's plan to reshape a North Central Florida thoroughfare appear to have fallen on deaf ears. After asking for and receiving public input against the proposal, the Alachua county commission is moving forward with plans to narrow NW 16th and 23rd avenue. Supporters said they aren't trying to change people's commuting habits.
"Nobody is telling them that they have to get out of their car or walk or ride a bike. All this is going to do is slow down the traffic a little bit which is not a bad thing," said supporter Julia Reiskin "Why is everyone in such a hurry?"
