CTA: Public input helping shape Red Line South reconstruction project

This CTA Press Release was published on August 16th, I wonder if anyone disagrees with it.
Public feedback received at a series of recent community meetings is helping shape and improve the CTA’s plans for the Red Line South reconstruction project in 2013.
Feedback from CTA riders and community residents has been incorporated into plans for several elements of the project, from service levels to community outreach. Since announcing the Red Line South project in early June, the CTA has held three large-scale public hearings along with numerous smaller community meetings in neighborhoods throughout the project area. CTA has also worked closely with elected officials to solicit community feedback and better understand concerns.
"The Red Line South is an investment in our future that will revitalize communities and create jobs," said Mayor Rahm Emanuel. "It is crucial that the voices of South Side residents are heard throughout this process and I'm encouraged by the incredible turnout we have seen thus far."
“These meetings have provided a productive forum for everyone who will be impacted by the work to ask questions, share their concerns and offer suggestions,” said CTA President Forrest Claypool. “We very much appreciate the ideas and thoughts we’ve received. We’ve listened closely, and we’re using all the feedback we’ve received to refine our plans to make sure the project proceeds as smoothly as possible.”
I encourage you to read the entire press release, but feel free to share your thoughts on this process. Feel free to email us at blog @ thesixthward . us, send a tweet @thesixthward, or write on our FB page wall
