Today I took a ride to nowhere with a group of friends I have weekly coffee with.

My group of friends has become known locally as the Friday Morning Philosophers. We are philosophers because we say we are. Does that make it true?

Our trip to nowhere is not the truth except that I said it was. We took our trip on the new Brightline high-speed train. There actually is a destination.

In this episode of the City Voice podcast, I describe the high-speed train ride, talk about death by train and who if anyone is at fault, connectivity in multiple forms, and what is preferable a roadway or streets? Throughout this episode, I contemplate and poke fun at truth. Is it anything more than what we say it is?

Train Horns Downtown Design and The President’s Racist Remarks City Voice Podcast 050

My conversation is with West Palm Beach Mayor Jeri Muoio.

We discuss the issue of quiet zones for high-speed rail crossings in West Palm Beach and Palm Beach County.

What’s the hold up on the quiet zones? When will they be finished? What power do cities have to compel action? What does she think about them not being completed?

Next on the agenda, we discuss possible design changes to downtown West Palm Beach on Clematis St. There are several opportunities for input from local merchants and residents. (See Notes and Links Below for details) Possible changes are tree canopy, lighting, pedestrian crossings, cafe seating, sidewalks, and more. 

Finally, many of us have heard about the hateful and demeaning comments made by The President of The United States. His comments were heard by at least one sitting U.S. Senator and congressional staff. Mayor Muoio gives her thoughts.

Links and Notes  regarding Clematis St design input sessions

Local Merchants Tuesday, January 16 from [10:30] until [12:30] at the West Palm Beach City Hall.

All residents can give input on Saturday, January 20 from 9:00 am until 1:00 pm at the West Palm Beach Greenmarket.

Also, all residents can participate in and give their input at The West Palm Beach City Hall from 5:30 to 8:00 pm
