Criticism kindly meant

Last year opponents of the Mass. Ave. redesign published their own plan for the street. This proposal was later made available online by the Arlington Advocate.

Last week the Advocate ran my short criticism of three aspects of that plan, “Reconsidering Mass. Ave. Criticism.

To cut to the chase:

Some of the critics’ concerns have merit. Some have been incorporated into the Town’s plan. However, I urge opponents to reconsider demands that would, perhaps unwittingly, widen Mass. Ave., snarl traffic, and forgo state and federal funding.

The whole thing is here and the opponents’ 2009 plan is here.

Thanks to the Advocate for making both of these viewpoints available online.
