CSG News: Inspiration!

We had a record turnout for Smart Growth Social with two special guests – David Zipper and WMATA General Manager Randy Clarke. It was a great party and chance to catch up, but we also called everyone to action to help us win the funding Metro needs. We’ll need your help to speak up for transit-oriented communities, more housing, safer streets, and reforming state transportation priorities. See below for the opportunities to speak up in your community!

Looking at the many issues we are tackling this month, a common theme emerges. What are our region’s priorities? Is it to subsidize a new stadium for the Commanders or to close Metro’s budget gap? Is it parking or more housing? Transit and safer streets or more HOT lanes and wide, dangerous arterials? Please read on to see how you can help fight for more housing, safer streets, and transit.

CSG News: What a celebration!
