meeting on 9/20 re: red line extension to 130th St.

I just got the following information from Developing Communities Project and wanted to share it with you.

The Red Line Oversight (Extension) Committee (ROC) is preparing to push for more jobs and transportation spending as part of National Support Transit Day
on Tuesday 9/20, 6:00-7:45 p.m. (5:30 p.m. Sign In) at Lutheran Church of the Holy Spirit, 1335 W. 115th St. (fully accessible space)

President Obama’s newly proposed “American Jobs Act” prioritizes transportation spending as the key component to “Jump Start” the economy! Eliminating slow zones along the South branch of the Red Line and station improvements at the 95th street station are both “Shovel Ready” projects. Fast tracking the Environmental Impact and Engineering Study for the Red Line Extension is now “Center Stage”. Come prepared to participate!

We need you to join us to:
• Roll up your sleeves, bring your hard hats and prepare to push for Jobs and Transit!
• Kick off the Far Southside’s Environmental Impact Study and related Projects.
• Add to the public call to include the Red Line Extension in the State’s 5-year Transportation Budget Plan. Comment period ends September 30th.

This season over $80 billion in Federal/State Transit dollars are up for grabs!
The Red Line Extension Deserves SOME!
