Thanks for the update.
SMART looks to be there by end of 2019.
I know that you cant promise anything but there are a couple of large communities located less than .5 mile from the station. What requirements are you guys looking at before extending into a community. I assume there must be some sort of population density that makes certain areas more attractive than others? What about local city councils and permits? Do you bump into red tape a lot?
Basically, what can I do to help you, help me get rid of Comcast.
Our goal is to build the entire Bay Area, the state, and then the country. We're making progress toward that, with communities including San Francisco, Albany, Berkeley and Northern Oakland now well underway, on top of our early efforts in spots like Sebastopol and Brentwood.
Clearly there are things that cities can do which make the process slower and more complex, and we've experienced those in some communities. For example, San Francisco's disallowance of all trenchless construction has resulted in a reduction in scope of potential coverage there. That said, at this stage there is nothing specific that a community like Larkspur needs to do in order to allow for the potential for expansion there.
We are talking with some communities about ballot initiatives for buildout, including some communities in Marin. We'll see if leadership takes an interest in that concept and if so, we'll have more to say on that idea.
