    Any chance of a commitment to true snow removal (not just putting peds in the snow crossfire between street plows and property owners) in the half mile around the station? Otherwise if we see this as a summer-only facility: In Europe the main station would have food/snacks/small shopping and bring together regional and local travelers - we have train nearby, can we add Greyhound, Grand Canyon Shuttle and airport shuttle. Make our town and Grand Canyon a complete option for people travelling on holiday without cars and that also makes it better for us local users as well. A pleasant place indoor with food/bathrooms makes it easier to travel with children or meet up with friends. Add Bike rental in a thoughtful way. Add luggage/parcel storage for shoppers. Without a car you can't buy as much and enjoy it unless you can store it while doing other things. Make sure there are future plans for easy and more pleasant walking connection(s) across the tracks than what we have now. None are wide enough even for 2 wheelchairs to cross at the choke points on Beaver and SanFran or under the Rt66/Milton underpass. Would be lovely to have a major feature/sculpture/fountain there but probably not possible.

    • Yes
  • If so, what?
    For now lack of snow removal is easily the biggest deterrent for me plus lack of more committed spaces on buses for bikes so I've had to just bike or wait another 20 minutes for the next bus and hope that one won't have bikes on it already. Food options would make me enjoy the trip.
  • Which, if any, designs below do you like?
    • Alternative D
  • Please explain what you like and dislike about the above options.
    Connection to historical look of town. All look OK really. Should be pleasant for pedestrians to move in and protected from rain and snow when moving from but to bus.
  • Is there anything else you would like to be considered in the design?

    Best if providing protection from rain and snow while travelling from bus to bus. Put solar panels on top of it to take advantage of large roof. Connection to local red stone would be nice rather than metal look of some options that looks dated very quickly. If second story would be nice with view of mountains and tables for resting/eating. Good luck! Do we know if other towns have made a big change with their DCC and whether people have responded and used it or have just ignored it?
