“It's ex­tremely short-sighted not to con­sider in­clud­ing in­cor­po­rat­ing of­fice build­ings, a ho­tel, and sup­port­ing re­tail into these plans for the park­ing garage and the trans­porta­tion cen­ter it­self. This is our op­por­tu­nity to get it right at Stam­ford's gate­way and also help re­duce com­muter traf­fic on I-95. We have to look at the big pic­ture. We only get one chance with this. Get the state, the city, the pub­lic, and the de­vel­op­ers in­volved and start talk­ing se­ri­ously. While on the sub­ject, what­ever hap­pened to the pro­posed train sta­tion on the East Side?”

— Stam­fordRa­dioGuy, via stam­for­dad­vo­cate.com “I don’t get the ar­gu­ment that park­ing isn’t the high­est and best use. At the end of the day, it is a train sta­tion, and peo­ple need to find a con­ve­nient place to park. It’s not the fault of the com­muters that the DOT and the state is so badly mis­man­aged that they are look­ing to squeeze rev­enue out of ev­ery pot­hole they own. Their core mis­sion is to man­age the trans­porta­tion sys­tem, not to be a real es­tate agency.”
