Fix290 Meet Up! Thursday, May 29th 7pm

May 28th, 2008

Date: Thursday, May 29
Time: 7:00 PM
Place: ACC Pinnacle Campus, 10th Floor Conference Room

Dear Friend of Fix290,

What’s happening on Hwy 290? After the CAMPO Board voted to fund the highway as a toll road last October, TxDOT announced a $1.1 billion shortfall in construction funds due to an “accounting error.” Nevertheless, they turned all toll projects over to the CTRMA for financing.

Does this mean that the parkway idea is lost? Not unless we let them forget about us.

We won’t let them forget! Please mark the evening of Thurs., May 29, on your calendar now! Come to a meeting for Fix290 activists at the ACC Pinnacle and hear how land use, transportation, and finance issues are all coming together. Find out how YOU can help us prevail with a highway that truly saves and serves Oak Hill.

See you all there!
