CONSIDER ADDITIONAL RR STOPS CAREFULLY

The Zia Road Station was adopted at the Dec. 13, 2007, Santa Fe Santa Fe, city, Argentina
Santa Fe, city (1991 pop. 341,000), capital of Santa Fe prov., NE Argentina, a river port near the Paraná, with which it is connected by canal. Metropolitan Planning Organization A metropolitan planning organization (MPO) is a transportation policy-making organization made up of representatives from local government and transportation authorities. In the early 1970s, the United States Congress passed legislation that required the formation of an MPO for any meeting as a neighborhood stop for transit connections. Zia Station was adopted as a non-park-and-ride site to be specifically and narrowly tailored to minimize auto traffic. We as a neighborhood are still trying to digest what that means.
What we do know is that the intersection of Zia Road and St. Francis Drive is a failing intersection. Any additional traffic will only exacerbate an already bad situation. This traffic situation belongs to all of us, so let's work together and fix it.
Candlelight Neighborhood Assoc.
I don't believe that anyone in the Candlelight (Zia) neighborhood is interested in making the Zia rail stop their "private" domain as Don Clavio states in the Dec. 7 My View, "Thoughts on Rail Runner platforms, parking, safety."
The basic concern of the neighborhood is safety, for both those in cars and those walking. Some kind of development is coming. How much is the question.
A small temporary parking lot will only drive commuters into the neighborhood onto streets that were not meant for a lot of traffic. Some commuter is bound to block something. That means the police, already overloaded o·ver·load
tr.v. o·ver·load·ed, o·ver·load·ing, o·ver·loads
To load too heavily.
An excessive load.
Adj. 1. , will have to respond and waste time writing tickets and having the "blocker" removed.
In my opinion, I believe that the Zia stop shouldn't open at all until the final development is built. The developer will have to close the temporary lot to build. Having one is not a practical idea. It would be just a waste of money.
Keep the Zia stop closed.
I write to support the letter by Dan Clavio urging the state to build a Rail Runner station at Richards Avenue.
In addition to the reasons he mentioned, that location is already served by Santa Fe Trails Santa Fe Trails is the local transit agency in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Santa Fe Trails operates eight bus routes which serve most areas of the city. Nearly all of the routes originate at the downtown Transit Center one block west of the Plaza. (the bus), and could be used by students at Santa Fe Community College
Santa Fe Community College (SFCC) is a two-year community college located in New Mexico, whose main campus is on 366 acres (148 hectares) just southwest of .
If students could ride the train and bus to school, that could greatly relieve traffic in the Zia and Rodeo rodeo (rō`dēō, rōdā`ō), public exhibition of the skill of cowboys in various activities. Events include riding broncos, riding steers, "bulldogging" steers, roping and tying steers and calves, the use of the lasso, and roads area. And, it would give residents in the fastest growing area near the city a way to use the train to get into town.
Our local officials should support this option.

No way it works
I can understand the architects of the Santa Fe Community Convention Center trying to be efficient by using an underground parking lot entrance that was designed for a single attendant to navigate from a center island, but obviously that design is not suited to the traffic flow of a one-way street Noun 1. one-way street - unilateral interaction; "cooperation cannot be a one-way street"
unilateralism - the doctrine that nations should conduct their foreign affairs individualistically without the advice or involvement of other nations
As one drives west on South Federal Place, (where months after completion there are still no lines on the road to direct traffic), cars are backed up across two lanes as they enter the far gate of the underground lot, thereby blocking through traffic and post office customers.
But the most ridiculous part of the design is that those same cars also block drivers who are attempting to exit the parking lot (through the near gate). Is it too much to hope for that there are corrective plans in the works to make "form follow function"?
Here's a hint: Whichever way the one-way street is headed, the entrance comes before the exit.
Examine our record
Most Americans firmly declare that, as a nation, we lead the "free world" with our human rights principles. Acknowledging this week's 60th anniversary of the U.S. signing the Universal Declaration of Human Rights Universal Declaration of Human Rights
Declaration adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in 1948. Drafted by a committee chaired by Eleanor Roosevelt, it was adopted without dissent but with eight abstentions. , we need to examine this belief more carefully. Indeed, we pledged ourselves to achieve "the promotion of universal respect for and observance of human rights and fundamental freedoms" spelled out in the declaration's 30 Articles.
However, news coverage just this last week shows that U.S. actions presently include slavery, torture, arbitrary detention, and violation of privacy and free expression.
