    1. In a previous workshop, the existence of the old Prospect Park road, starting at Hill Street and following the contours around the southeastern edge of the Park was pointed out. This makes a logical, and available trail, and possibly a bike route that eases the trek up onto Congress. It is not shown in the current presentation.

    2. The importance of a rail connection and TOD in the south Troy industrial strip was also pointed out. There appears to be a “commuter station” designated in the 2003 plan, but no further mention in the current plan. Regarding rail, the need to retain a ROW that would extend along the River toward the CBD was also pointed out.

    3. Concepts for the area around the Green Island Bridge are commendable. Ar present, a continuous path is blocked by the tract that was given to the Bar B Que restaurant with no serious effort at a simple easement for a trail. Does anyone really think there will be the will to remake that whole area now for a continuous waterfront?
