The CTA next month will sponsor four open houses for riders to share their ideas for future improvements for the Red Line north from Addison to Linden on the Purple Line.
The CTA is looking for the public to provide feedback and input on existing conditions and issues facing the two lines. Wow! I'm thinking that will take way more than just four sessions. But hey, it's a start!
The press release notes:
"There will be no
formal presentation. Guiding tours of the open house exhibits will be provided and staff will be available to answer questions. . . . The open houses also will provide information on the Vision Study process and long-term timeline."
Look for details after the continuation. And feel free to give your ideas here. I promise to formally present all comments and ideas made here.
UPDATE: Andy created a Google doc to compile all the idea in one place. Put 'em here. Thanks Andy.
