If
you can’t make it to the meetings, we still want your input on what you
think about the proposed subway. During this “scoping period” for the
study, we especially need to hear what you think the study should focus
on. We will be posting our scoping presentation on our website
(www.metro.net/westside) some time next week. We will be continuing to
post new information to the web site under the “News & Info” tab.
You can find out how to send in your comments so they count officially

Thanks for your continued interest in the Westside Subway Extension.
