>> Peter Rogoff:
In Phoenix, as in Charlotte, we connected the campuses of a great university.
Arizona State University has its main campus in Tempe; it’s got a new downtown campus
and the light rail is serving as the connection.
That is what we are going to have here in Charlotte between the Center City campus and
the main campus of UNC Charlotte.
Let me add another thing that we probably don’t talk about enough, giving the students
an opportunity to come down and enjoy themselves on a Saturday night and not drive back is
a benefit to the entire community.
