Tell Patterson and Hackel: RTA in 2018!

Date: 
Tue, Jan 23, 2018 - 11:00am to 1:00pm

City:

*UPDATED* After a year of negotiations, Oakland County Executive L. Brooks Patterson and Macomb County Executive Mark Hackel are still holding out against putting a proposal for regional transit on the ballot in 2018. Patterson is reportedly refusing to support a proposal unless individual cities are allowed to "opt out" - the same senseless provision that has made Swiss cheese out of the SMART bus system.

What does Detroit lose when we prioritize cars over people?

Detroit has a problem: The combination of numerous surface parking lots, and insufficient transportation alternatives, has created a downtown full of holes and gaps that undermine the walkability and density the city needs to compete globally.

Join us in the parlor with urbanist and public policymaker Francis Grunow for a conversation about the REAL costs of parking.
