Save the Trolley Trail Announcement

z6

February 5th, 2014.  Great meeting tonight!!! 50 people signed up to volunteer for one thing or another and there were, at least, another ten – twenty people there, not counting the streetcar proponents. A great turnout considering the weather and street conditions – something the City should, perhaps, spend a bit more on in the future. The Mayor appeared and spoke but did NOT dominate the meeting, though he made a valiant effort to do so. Also, though we cordially gave the opposition an opportunity to speak, we steered the course. We are a force to be reckoned with and will not go quietly into the night.

I will be emailing those of you who signed up to volunteer your efforts in order to determine the strengths each of you brings to this effort. My goal is mobilize each of you to put your talents to work for our common goal.

Everyone who came to the meeting rocks but so do those of you who support our cause but were unable to attend the meeting.

Please, please, go to the site, below, especially if you oppose and sign up to be on the Streetcar advisory panel – don’t let them make a mockery of us by advertising that we can participate in the advisory panel and then being in a position to say that no one in the opposition signed up.

Applications will be accepted until 11:59 PM CST on February 13, 2014.

  2. Save The Trolley Trail says:

    We will post future meeting and event dates right here. And the issues are much larger than just the trail itself. “A recurring theme brought out at this groups public meeting by several who stood up and spoke emphasized, to the mayors face no less, the sheer lunacy of committing vast taxpayer resources to rail while the city school system and attempts to control violent crime are an abject failure. The point was made that if one were to desire economic development solving these major issues would do a lot more than building a streetcar line that even the proponents admit will have very limited ridership.”
