Sustainable La Crosse Alternative Transportation Forum

Here's a great opportunity to get involved in the discussion about what we want for our region's transportation future - more roads, more spending on car infrastructure, more pollution, more congestion, more fossil fuel dependence? Or more alternatives including public transportation, high occupancy vehicle lanes, bike infrastructure, etc.

SUSTAINABLE LA CROSSE COMMISSION TO HOST ALTERNATIVE TRANSPORTATION FORUM

>>> NOTE UPDATED START TIME! <<<

Cities-County Group’s first of two public discussions for January, February

(LA CROSSE, Wis. – January 5, 2017) – The Sustainable La Crosse Commission (SLC) will be hosting a forum on the sustainability of transportation modes in the La Crosse area. The forum will be open to the public and is intended to encourage discussion about environmental, economic, and social impacts and alternatives of getting around by car, bus, walking, and biking. Individuals representing the La Crosse transit utility, biking community, the Scenic Mississippi Regional Transit (SMRT), and the State Dept. of Transportation (DOT) have been invited to participate. Here are the details:

Sustainable La Crosse Commission - Forum on Alternative Transportation
January 18, 2017, 5:00- 6:30pm
La Crosse City Hall 3rd floor Conference Room
400 La Crosse Street, La Crosse, WI 54601

The State DOT is currently studying how to address traffic in the region. The proposed timeline for this project has been extended and State budget constraints have allowed for more discussion about how to best address regional transportation issues.  This forum will help guide future deliberations by the Commission regarding sustainable transportation options for the region.
