Sustainable Midlands Meeting: "Focus on Transit"
March 4, 2010 at 3:30PM
Meeting location: Capital Senior Center
1650 Park Circle
Sustainable Midlands supports efforts to improve and fund our transit system. Mitzi Javers, Executive Director of CMRTA, will be our guest speaker at our meeting next Thursday. She will outline the recommended upgrades to the transit system and explain the process that will determine the ballot question on funding that will hopefully be presented for a vote in November.
Remember that citizen support is key in implementing a successful public transportation system in the Midlands.
In other great news, the city council passed the chicken ordinance!
