Upcoming Meetings

There are some very interesting items coming up for downtown in the next week or so. STAR Bond Districts, a possible bike vault network for downtown if grant money comes through for Secure Storage Technologies, more land exchange discussion. I put the highlights below, however the agendas themselves are quite large and I encourage you as always to see what else is on the agendas that might be important to your neighborhood, no matter what neighborhood you live in.
