Transit referendum

17 May 2010 11:49 AM | Stephen Sayles (Administrator)

As some of you know, FCRP came out in support of this. Now we will see what the voters do.


It’s official: We’re on the ballot!!


At last Thursday’s hearing, the County Commissioners voted 5-2 to put the transportation referendum on the ballot for November.  We wanted to extend a huge thank you to all of our supporters who have helped get us to this crucial milestone, with special thanks to those of you who came out to the hearing wearing green and made your voices heard!


Now that we’ve passed this hurdle, we will be focusing on getting out into the community and educating our fellow residents about this initiative.  We’ll be in touch with reminders about upcoming events and opportunities to receive more materials and training to help with this effort. 


In the meantime, we hope you’ll check out our new website:  There are already links to some great news coverage of the public hearing.

Thanks again to all of you for your hard work and your continued support.
