Each week, the Orlando Sentinel asks two questions of 100 community leaders in Central Florida. Those with access to the online Sentinel can read all of this week’s 100-word responses when there are published online, usually late Saturday. For those without access, my responses are below. Selected responses appear in the Sunday print edition.
What was the biggest story of the week?
The Robinson Street Corridor Planning Study underway by the Florida Department of Transportation and the City of Orlando is an impressive exercise in collaboration, community involvement, and visioning for our city. The Public Workshop held last Monday provided those who live, work, and recreate along the corridor (Downtown – Executive Airport) an interactive opportunity to provide feedback on emerging proposals. Our city has a vibrant and growing public life downtown. Together we can develop a future that keeps cars moving while at the same time providing better parking, safer turning, and a more hospitable environment for bicyclists and pedestrians.
What will be the biggest story in the coming week?
No Entry this week.
The series focuses on state and local news.
