Federal Review Of SEWRPC Wednesday Will Take Testimony

Though SEWRPC and the feds have tamped down Wednesday evening's format for the planning agency's quadrennial review, the reviewers will still be accepting comments in oral or written form.

Court reporters will be available at the Harbor Lights room, second floor, Milwaukee Transit Center, 909 W. Michigan St., from 5-7 p.m.

There will not be an open microphone as in previous reviews, but comments can still be made or dropped off, which means public officials and taxpayers are encouraged to attend and speak out in favor of more transit, genuine open planning (unlike Wednesday's dumbed-down 'hearing' procedure), city and urban priorities and more inclusive SEWRPC hiring.
