I actually think it's better for downtown Silver Spring. If you look at the site plan for the new station, there would actually still be room to develop even with the station there. It wouldn't be as much as there was before, but there is still room.

Honestly, I'm not sure something has to go there anyway. Silver Spring is building up all over the place. There are several towers gong up now. I almost think that grassy area would better serve Silver Spring if it were turned into a public park with fountains etc. If they can somehow keep homeless and beggars from taking it over.

I agree. I mean who can predict change in ridership numbers? If there was an earthquake tomorrow, ridership would decrease significantly. Using the logic of the judge, we shouldn't build anything for fear of some unknown event in the future that would change statistical projections.

Some of the commenters on greatergreaterwashington looked into the judge and pretty much were able to find enough scraps of information to determine that he himself lives in Chevy Chase and is possibly a member of a golf club that's anti-Purple line. If all this is true, he should've recused himself. Talk about a conflict of interest

Yeah. I mean his argument has so many holes and seems very after-the-fact.

I read that, but that was not confirmed when I read it. Has it been confirmed yet about the judge?

This should be investigated.
