February Coffee Chat (Trails Update) & Membership Meeting (BRT)

17 Feb

Our monthly signature events are just around the corner. Here’s the scoop:

Coffee Chat this Friday, February 20, 8 – 9am at Howlin’ Hounds.
Eric Williams is the Natural Resources Planner at the Papio-Missouri River Natural Resources District, and the Project Manager for the NRD’s involvement in trail projects. He will present information about current and summer 2015 trail projects in the metro — including the new connection of the South Omaha Trail, Phase 2, and the West Papio Trail from 90th to 108th & Giles.

MSO Membership Meeting, Wednesday, February 25, 7 – 8:30pm at the Pizza Shoppe.
Omaha’s Metro Area Transit received a $14.9 million grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation (TIGER Grant) to build Omaha’s Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system. It’s kind of a big deal. Lauren Cencic from Metro, who is managing the project, will be on hand to give us an update and answer questions. As a reminder, we’ve formed a BRT task force whose aim is to ensure that Omaha’s BRT suits our city well.

      Hi Jim, it looks like you were referring to the February 2015 post instead of this year’s February post. The Member Meeting is Wednesday, February 24th at 7pm. Hope you can make it!
