Community Forum – Moving Traffic: Low Country Problems and Solutions

Moving Traffic: Low Country Problems and Solutions is the subject of an upcoming community forum that is being presented by the League of Women Voters of the Charleston Area.

Date: April 6, 2016 (Wednesday)

Time: 6 PM

Location:
North Charleston City Hall
2500 City Hall Lane
North Charleston

** The forum is open to the public at no charge – free parking**


Traffic and transportation issues have been major topics of discussion in the Lowcountry for many years. However, the debate continues on both the state and local levels with little action to remedy the problems created by inadequate funding for needed infrastructure improvements and public transportation. Join the League of Women Voters of the Charleston Area and a panel of experts to discuss:

  • What is the most feasible and effective mass transit option?
  • What can be done about tri-county areas like James Island, Johns Island and the Summerville corridor?
  • How can the funding problem be solved?
  • How is the business community affected?
  • What impact would the various proposed solutions have on our environment and natural resources?

The forum will be facilitated by Susan Richards, President, SR Concepts and League of Women Voters moderator.

Featured Speakers:

  • Kathryn Basha – Planning Director  |  Berkeley-Charleston-Dorchester Council of Governments
  • Mary Graham – Chief Advancement Officer  |  Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce
  • Julie Hussey – Owner  |  Civic Communications
  • Natalie Olson Esq.  |  Coastal Conservation League

Contributor: Sharon Hollis – Senior Transportation Planner  |  Davis and Floyd

Presentations will be followed by Q & A and open discussion.
