BeyondDC, My point was that in order to do the NEPA, I would think they'd need to have a firmer plan than they currently have. I.e., Yes, they could submit based on their current proposal, but given that this proposal has only recently seen the light of day, it's highly unlikely that the plan being proposed today will be the plan being built ... or the plan to go through the NEPA. I guess the NEPA could be amended a year or so down the road when a more final plan gets firmed up ... But that's assuming there won't be major changes to this proposal. I think that's quite an asssumption given that this plan is based on the assumption that overhead wires will be allowed in numerous spots throughout the L'Enfant city. And the footprint for the rails themselves are another big big 'if'. Already, you have a Councilmember (one VERY friendly to street cars at that) responding to the political pressures of his constituents regarding the 8 St SE alignment. DO you really think this will be the only instance of pressure being put to bear to change the route? Nah ... the final plan we end up with will only be a distant cousin of the one being currently proposed. And we won't know till a year or more down the road what it'll look like. There's plenty of time for various forms of community comment. Actually, there's plenty of time and need for these comments.
