The following press release was provided by the League of Women Voters of Lexington.
A variety of perspectives about transportation issues and opportunities in and around Lexington will be presented at the League of Women Voters' monthly forum which has been moved to the second Friday, April 13.
What can be done about increasing traffic congestion on our streets? What are the differing transportation needs of students, their parents, seniors, commuters, and businesses? How will the proposed MBTA cuts affect bus service in Lexington and LexPress? How will the increasing price of gas affect transportation choices in the future?
Panelists will include Rick Abrams of the Greenways Corridor Committee; Michelle Ciccolo of the Lexington Planning Board; Lexington Transportation Services Coordinator Jeanette Rebecchi; Monica Tibbits, executive director of the 128 Business Council; and a member of the ad hoc School Transportation and Safety Study Committee.
This is the seventh in a series of 2011-2012 First Friday Forums hosted by the League of Women Voters of Lexington to promote awareness and understanding of public policy issues.
Coffee will be available at 9:15 a.m. and presentations will begin at 9:30 at the Cary Memorial Library. For more information or to carpool, contact the League at 781-862-6435. All League forums are open to the public at no charge.
