Important MoDOT Meeting

Tuesday, May 19th, 5:30PM, about 60 minutes
MARC headquarters, 600 Broadway, Kansas City, MO 64105

I've been trying to explain to people just how important this meeting is,
and it's not that easy. But let me try:

* MoDOT roads and policies are the biggest single impediment to better,
safer bicycling and walking in Missouri.

* That's because MoDOT roads--lots of them--go right through our cities,
and when they do they are usually the worst places for bicycling and

* This meeting is with a group trying to build public support for future
MoDOT funding--because MoDOT funding is about to be slashed by 60%.

* How can we support future MoDOT funding unless MoDOT is going to use
that funding to provide for safe bicycling and walking, where needed, on
(and across) their roads?

* We need PEOPLE--lot of them--to ask for that.

* And that's why we need YOU to come to this meeting Tuesday, May 19th,

* It should only last 60 minutes and we'll have refreshments. If you
can't make it just at 5:30 it's fine to come when you can.
