Indy Connect Announces E-Town Hall Meeting

Indy Connect, Central Indiana’s Transportation Initiative, will host an E-Town Hall meeting from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 1.

The E-Town Hall meeting will open with a presentation about the recently announced long-range transportation plan and provide opportunities for residents to email questions for a question-and-answer session. The meeting will be facilitated by Indy Connect representatives Lori Miser, executive director of the Indianapolis Metropolitan Planning Organization, and Mike Terry, president and CEO of IndyGo.

Those interested in participating in the E-Town Hall can log on to www.indyconnect.org at 7 p.m. to view and participate in the live stream. At that time, viewers also will be given the opportunity to email questions to the meeting moderators.

The presentation and Q & As will be posted on the Indy Connect website following the live stream.

The long-range transportation plan is the result of extensive public comment and planning by regional transportation experts. This is the most comprehensive plan ever for Central Indiana that includes connectivity for the region through bus, rail, roadways and bike and pedestrian walkways.

The E-Town Hall meeting follows a two-week session of community meetings where residents had an opportunity to view details of the plan and provide feedback and comment.
