Residents invited to Downtown Library to weigh in on transportation fixes Wednesday

Ever complain about traffic?

Here’s your chance to say something about what’s not working and what’s needed — to people who want to hear it — at a county-wide forum on transportation.

It happens this Wednesday, May 9, 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 pm at the library downtown, 1044 Middlefield Road.

And it isn’t just talk either.  The purpose of the meeting is to help shape spending priorities for San Mateo County’s transportation sales tax measure, in the works for the November ballot. In March, the San Mateo County Transit District Board of Directors were presented a public poll showing over 74-percent support for a 30-year, half-cent sales tax measure to repair roads, reduce gridlock and improve public transit in the county.

What would you want, if voters should pass the transportation tax in November? More bike lanes, better bus service, better buses, more options for seniors, toll lanes, more carpooling, safer sidewalks?  Don’t miss this chance to put in your two cents, on how our two cents would be spent.

By the way, this is one of a series of these forums around the county; and since this is officially the South County edition, if you have a friend in San Carlos, pass the word on to them too.

RSVPs (please) here.
