April 25th GreenLine Workshop

April 17th, 2015

Click here to view the official report from the March 12 LRT workshop

This is a public workshop that everyone can attend. We encourage you to make it out as this will be the final workshop before the decision is made for the alignment of the GreenLine going through Ramsay. Once they have the alignment then there will be workshops on the TOD for Inglewood, Ramsay and the Crossroads station.

I came across this great video about complete streets that I had to share. It’s about New York’s implementation of the Dutch bicycle life style. How do you give the car, bike and pedestrian equal rights on the streets? Check it out. They seem to be successful.
