  1. I enjoyed Mr. Geller’s comment about 3/4 of the way through the podcast. One of the interviewers asked Mr. Geller if there was a plan to raise the funds, or reprioritize funding in the city budgets, to realize the recommendations made in the bicycle master plan. His response was:

    “There is a plan in the plan for developing a plan …”

    His statement is a good representation of current municipal leadership in this town. We spend millions on plans, and have little left over for projects. Planning is good when the resources for planning don’t begin to outweigh the resources for projects. Politically it’s easy to plan, its more difficult to do. We need more doing.
