SUMMARY - Triangle Community Coalition & WakeUP Wake County
GoWake GoTransit GoVote!
On Friday October 7th the Triangle Community Coalition teamed up with WakeUp Wake County to present a panel discussion on the Wake County transit referendum which is on the ballot this November 8. The TCC has endorsed both the transit plan and its funding mechanism - a 1/2 cent sales tax.
The discussion was moderated by Karen Rindge, the Executive Director of WakeUp Wake County and the panel consisted of John Kane, President of Kane Realty; Mary-Ann Baldwin, Raleigh City Councilor; and Asa Fleming, past President of the Raleigh Regional Association of Realtors. Councilor Baldwin first gave a PowerPoint presentation on the transit plan which can be found on the TCC at www.tricc.org
This was followed by opening remarks by the panelists and a lengthy question and answer period.
· 53% of road miles are congested at rush hour
· Transit increases economic competitiveness
· Urged the group to Vote YES for the plan
· Noted that it was a realistic plan that worked within a certain budget
· 55% of people would pay a higher mortgage to be closer to a transit stop
· 70% of millennials prefer transit modes
· Most collaborative and cooperative effort for transit with many groups coming together to support the plan
The TCC is supporting the referendum as a way to promote smart growth in the Triangle and create more transit options for all Wake County citizens. We encourage our members to vote in favor of the referendum on November 8.
