Historic City News readers are encouraged to attend the second meeting of the controversial Mobility Advisory Task Force on Wednesday, July 6, from 5:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. in The Alcazar Room of City Hall, located at 75 King Street.
The task force will meet again on Wednesday, August 3, and Wednesday, September 7. The meetings will be available for live and on-demand viewing at CoSATV.com.
“With the assistance of the Littlejohn consultant team and under the guidance of city leadership, the challenge of mobility will now be addressed with a fervor and determination heretofore unseen.”
“Land Use/Urban Design, Street Network, Streetscapes”
The creation and participation of the Mobility Advisory Task Force is a critical element in the development of the Mobility Plan. As a group of interested citizens, you will serve as a “sounding board” to the Littlejohn team as we review previous studies, exchange ideas, define local and regional mobility challenges. The Task Force meeting will be run by Littlejohn and facilitated by George Kramer, Director of Planning.
