Your welcome! I believe where possible, rails and trails are important pieces of infrastructure if done correctly. They may require a fence or some additional ROW, but they double the mobility options along a corridor.
I was thinking about your question before you actually asked and one of the things I was always concerned about was finding a job. Planning can be contentious and this is an avenue for me to share ideas, think outside the box, and suggest things that make sense, yet are politically unpalatable. I don’t worry as much about it since I have found employment, but I still have aspirations of bringing things into the fold that might draw criticism. My name is Scott Workman and I approve this message.
