Editor, Daily Nexus:
I write to correct a misunderstanding, repeated in the Daily Nexus, that the campus Design Review Committee is opposed to the Broida bikepath (“Road Rage,” April 25). In fact, a number of months ago the committee approved a Broida bikepath project that included a comprehensive scheme to improve the plaza, add landscaping, relocate some of the trailers around the buildings and put in more bike parking. The idea was to make the area better for pedestrians and the occupants of the buildings, as well as bicyclists.
What the committee did not favor was a more recent, stripped-down proposal to move some trailers out of the way, cut down a couple of mature trees and pave a strip of asphalt through the plaza. While some things may not be worth doing unless done right, that shouldn’t be confused with a lack of interest in doing anything.
