Two Saturdays in August: Two Great Events Coming Upposted
Keeping District 18 residents informed and involved is part of my job as an Alder. That’s why I’m very pleased to have been able to help arrange two important and informative meetings in the month of August.
Public Transportation on the Northside: A Look at the Future including What Bus Rapid Transit will mean for the Northside
Saturday, August 14
1 p.m. – 3 p.m.
Warner Park Recreation Center
1625 Northport Drive
Presentation by Mike Cechvala, Transportation Planner, City of Madison
Question and Answer period to follow
You may have heard about the City’s focus on Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) which promises faster transportation times. The initial corridor for BRT will operate east-west through downtown and the UW campus area. In addition, the city is planning a Metro Transit Network Redesign, which envisions the biggest changes to our bus system in the last 20+ years. Come learn about these big changes, how BRT will, or won’t, affect the Northside, and how you can make your voice heard. After a presentation by Mike Cechvala, we’ll have plenty of time for questions and answers.
Carpenters Union Training Center Open House
Saturday, August 28
11 a.m. – 1 p.m.
Carpenters Training Center
5202 Monument Lane, Madison WI
As a Union Member for 25 years, I’m pleased to join the Carpenters Union at their open house to highlight apprenticeship opportunities and how workers can access a rewarding career in the building trades. The Training Center is an amazing facility, and it is a good example of what we need to do to train the next generation of Union Carpenters.
Help me spread the word about these two great Saturdays coming up. As always, if you have questions or need more information, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
