Join Us for a Public Forum on Transportation

The public is invited to a free presentation and conversation with the CT League of Conservation Voters (CT LCV) about connecting and preserving our state’s communities with better transportation. The forum will be held tomorrow, November 19, 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the deKoven House Community Center.

"Getting Where You Want to Go," will explore the upfront and hidden costs of our present transportation system on the state’s economy, public health and natural resources. It will also present a vision for a new, 21st-century system that promotes livable communities, enhances public health and our economy, and preserves our environment--all while moving people and goods to where they need to go.

The presentation is based on a new publication by CT LCV, available for free download at

Hosted by The Rockfall Foundation, this forum is free. Seating is on a first come, first served basis. Registration is not necessary but appreciated: contact Tony Marino (860)347-0340;
