I liked the page. We have an extremely popular rail trail near us, the Capital Crescent Trail. I think it is near the top in use in the country (which is, of course, a mixed blessing). Nadim commutes by bike using the trail many days.
Rail trails are huge benefits to the communities they're in (and real estate agents always brag how close their properties are to them :-).
Also liked, plus son in SLC did as well. One through our town had similar resistance where it went through tight residential areas. Now it is continually in use and a boon to the region.
I liked it, too. I have been around this sort of thing for a long time, both locally here in the Farmington Valley and back when I lived on the Vineyard. The NIMBY crowd always complains about public space and predicts all kinds of horrible stuff that never actually materializes. Then the public space gets used and appreciated and everybody ends up happy at the end.
Yes, indeed, we need a world wide web of the same. Without more and more public spaces, privacy and exclusivity can triumph - or there's the run-down aspect with those issues. NH has quite a bit of R to T mileage. A good use for Face Book too.
