A public hearing and special council meeting to vote on the appropriation of $2 million in EDIT funds for paving has been announced for Thursday, May 28. The hearing will be at 7:15 pm and the meeting at 7:30 pm in the usual third floor Assembly Room location.
It should be noted that much of the chicanery around potential paving has occurred as a matter of jihad against the proposed two-way street conversions with the conversation sometimes veering in a very personal direction, with objections based on where the conversions would take place rather than how.
The fact that a special, largely unadvertised meeting was scheduled to kill a widely popular proposal is unfortunately not surprising.
Those interested in two-way, traffic calmed, pedestrian and bike friendly streets might want to consider raising their voices.
