Meg, Your letter to Councilmember Wells is a very good one and most definitely reflects the views and concerns of the vast majority of the folks out there. I just hope he and DDOT take heed and not think that just because they're putting up a few community meetings (i.e., same meeting/different ward) will mean they've got 'buy in'. While obviously a lot of thought has gone into what they're proposing, there are some parts of the proposal which clearly show that there isn't a 'pulse on the street' yet ... E.g., the idea of overhead wires in any of the historice districts (and on any of their streets) will never fly with the public and especially with those organizations responsible for protecting those districts.

Overall, I think everyone is happy to see the street cars coming back, but let's hope this effort doesn't get stopped in its tracks (no pun intended!) because the full public vetting processes ends up getting abridged or 'played with' in any sense. That would be in no one's interests.
