Want the TIA to pass? Then get your @$$ in gear!
As campaigns around the city in support of the Transportation Investment Act began to ramp up, there are plenty of volunteer activities that you can participate in to help out.
The Livable Communities Coalition is launching its campaign, Fast Track Forward, with a kickoff Wednesday, April 25th, at 5:30 at SHOUT restaurant. Please join the campaign and Doug Hooker of the Atlanta Regional Commission as they celebrate moving forward with their successful Fair Share for Transit initiative which helped to secure 52% of the project list going to transit. To prepare for the event, Fast Track Forward will host a volunteer night Monday, April 23rd at the LCC office at 10 Peachtree Place, beside of the Midtown station. Join the campaign at 6:00 for fellowship, fun, and some arts and crafts.
