Ryan: "Combine that with more pedestrian-friendly streets, better transit and a regulatory structure that encourages reinvestment and adaptive reuse, and you transform the local economy."

Judging from today's LRT news, I think the snag is that the deciders may well deem the latter two out of three a sufficiently substantial achievement. Will that fall short of the perfect transformation scenario? Perhaps. Will it prevent transformation entirely? Of course not. Measured against the ideal, it's a wet blanket. Measured against the status quo of the last half-century, it's a watershed event.
