Public Meetings for #MetroPlan

Metro recently released its draft expenditure plan. There’s a lot to like about it, but some things that we think definitely need fixing before it’s ready to send to the voters. Namely, we don’t want to see any highway capacity expansion in it, and we think active transportation deserves more funding. Do you agree?

 

Metro will be holding a series of public input meetings to hear what you think about it. They’re a great opportunity for you to speak out in favor of the plan putting more focus on green, equitable, and healthy transportation.
