So far, plans are light on bicycle infrastructure, so if you are interested in sustainable transportation for our future, please attend and have your say. Or visit the link to find out how you can comment directly to the folks working on this project via email. AND The La Crosse Common Council meets at 6:00 p.m. in the Council Chambers, City Hall, 6th and La Crosse Streets. There is no agenda available yet, but it is expected that the Council will decide on the future of Memorial Pool. At last week's Finance and Personnel committee meeting, a rebuild of the pool with historic designation consideration at its current site, was agreed. It's probable there will not be a public hearing, but having as many people as possible at the meeting registering in support will help with getting the pool back as soon as possible. 

On Saturday, July 15, Wisconsin Progress is hosting a READY TO RUN candidate training in Richland Center and Chippewa Falls. You can sign up here
