Transit Visioning in Detroit - Round 2
The second installment of transit visioning for metro Detroit is
scheduled for three dates this month: January 23, January 25, and January
The process is intended to result in a transit plan for Southeast
Michigan, which is lacking now.
Itís important for groups and individuals to participate in the visioning
sessions so that planners hear the voices of actual transit riders.
The citizen groups MOSES and Transportation Riders United are leaders in
transit advocacy in Southeast Michigan. Contact MOSES' Janice Joseph at
313-838-3190 or TRU's Karen Kendrick-Hands at 313-885-7588.
The Southeast Michigan Council of Governments is conducting this
multi-part process. SEMCOG is the metropolitan planning organization, or
MPO, for the 7-county region of 4.8 million people.
SEMCOG held the first visioning session on Aug. 10, 2000. Future sessions
are slated for March/April and June.
The SEMCOG news release follows. Registration is required.
