EVENT: Red line extension hearing

A public hearing for the red line extension project's draft environmental impact statement (EIS) to take place at the St. John MB Church at 211 E. 115th Street on Tuesday, Nov. 1, 2016 from 5:30 - 7:30 PM. For more information please refer to the flyer below.

As an aside at the 9th Ward meeting this past Tuesday, there was a nice presentation to update us on this project which is moving along at this time. We saw a presention on how this project would affect the parks along the right of way. Also we learned that through a state supreme court ruling, the CTA can't use eminent domain to purchase the right of way from the Union Pacific Railroad. Also there were handouts available including the flyer you see above and a citizen's guide pamphlet for the extension project. It would interesting to see what will be said at this hearing this coming Tuesday.
