The Start

On Sunday February 28, 2016 over 60 members of the surrounding community joined together tonight in Green Wood Church to form a new coalition of stakeholders from various residential communities that would be affected by UM’s proposal to move its transportation center and maintenance operations to a site that directly abuts several neighborhoods. Members in attendance included residents from the Green Road corridor of Green Brier, Baxter Court, Glacier Highlands, Waldenwood, and Vintage Valley. Local political representation included State representative Adam Zemke and Ward representatives Jane Lumm and Kirk Westphal. The coalition will be led by a number of interested leaders from the various groups as well as subject matter experts in air quality, noise, light and traffic studies, site planning and visual impact, environmental and sustainability analyses, and social justice issues.

  1. I need to know more details, but from what I could find, the new facility is to be built on an existing woodlot which currently does a fine job of shielding the current Baxter Road bus fueling facility from the rest of the neighborhood. Instead of tearing down the entire woodlot, I think they should use some of the land to expand the facility already in place, leaving most of the woodlot intact as a barrier along Green and Hubbard.
