Light Rail, Community Center, Superintendent meetings (and more!)

Ah, autumn: The crisp air, the bright colored foliage, the opportunity to keep warm by huddling together with your neighbors at community meetings (many of which include snacks).

Here is a list of community meetings being held in the first half of November. As always, we recommend attending them all. However, if you can only choose one, we’d steer you toward the Advisory Council/Community Meeting at the Ravenna-Eckstein Community Center. Your input into the future of center operations — prior to the big budget decisions happening in City Hall in November — is vital.
