RRCO E-News June 8th Update and Correction

We have just received word of an additional event of potential interest to River Road residents next week. Poor air quality has been an ongoing concern in some parts of our neighborhood.

And we need to make a correction to an item in our E-News that went out earlier today about the opportunities to comment on the regional transportation plan.

Air Quality Public Forum
Wednesday, June 16, 6:30 to 8:30 pm
Red Cross Building
862 Bethel Drive

You are invited to join representatives from the Lane Regional Air Protection Agency (LRAPA) to discuss key issues and priorities for the agency. This is an opportunity to learn more about the agency and express your interests and concerns about air quality.

In our earlier E-News we listed the Open House below as a Public Hearing. There is a Public Hearing, but it will be held in Springfield this week, prior to the Open House in Eugene next week. Both events are opportunities to give your input on the regional transportation plan.
