.....Light rail in a trendy Charlotte neighborhood:

"So the folks in Dilworth have finally gotten a close look at transit oriented development and they don’t like it? Who can blame them, but what did they think light rail meant? The South Blvd. line especially is a $500 million redevelopment engine targeting everything in that corridor, including the edge of Dilworth. Put it this way, if you like anything along any of the proposed transit lines as it currently exists, prepare to be outraged because it is all going to go away. That is the plan.....That is what light rail does, that is what it demands — higher density, more commerical, operationally anti-car."
