I received the following in my inbox last night. If you have time this evening, I suggest you check it out.
Topic: Surrey’s Transit Needs and the Transit Referendum, with Gordon Price and Surrey Councillor and Acting Mayor Bruce Hayne
Date: Thursday March 6 at the SFU Surrey Global Community Open House
Time: 5:45pm to 6:45pm
Location: Room 3270 at SFU Surrey
City Conversations comes to SFU Surrey’s Open House for a public conversation on the city’s ambitious plans to add major transit facilities for the region’s fastest-growing area. What will get built, where, and when? What will it cost, and who will pay? Why and how will car drivers benefit? How do Surrey’s plans mesh with the Transit Referendum that the Province says must take place?
City Conversations is a unique forum that invites you to be part of the conversation. Presenters briefly frame the issue, but most of the time is for your questions, comments and opinions. We’re in our third year at SFU Vancouver, and now, in Surrey for this special early evening event at SFU’s Open House.
We’ve invited senior Surrey officials, and a representative of Surrey’s business community. Gordon Price, a prolific and perceptive commenter on the region’s transportation, urban design and development, will also present. Then it’s your turn!
