Meet the Street(car), Meet the Mayor


The city is holding two events this week, a second open house on the downtown streetcar proposal on Thursday, and the mayor's regular Saturday office hours, now coming to you from the Hillcrest Library.

The streetcar open house is set for First Thursday, from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. at the storefront at 821 W. Idaho Street. The city will display information and city officials will be on hand to discuss the project. Citizens can also leave public comment, which is being collected to present to the City Council next year, along with recommendations from the Streetcar task force. You can also direct comments to the city via e-mail.

On Saturday, Mayor Dave Bieter is holding court at the newish Hillcrest Library at 5246 W Overland Road, in the Hillcrest Shopping Center from 9 a.m. to noon. Citizens get up to 10 minutes with the mayor on a first come, first served basis.
