Programming Note

Streetsbloggers,

I was supposed to be on vacation, starting today, but the Metro Board had other plans for me.  Today we’ll be covering the meeting on Twitter as it progresses and back here when major decisions are finally made.  Tomorrow and Tuesday will be on light publishing schedules.  We will have some original content, even if its just a “Today’s Headlines.”

Enjoy the Metro Board meeting, and the long weekend.
