Dear Friends and Neighbors,

Tuesday evening is one of the major public meetings in the EWEB Riverfront Master Plan process:

Tuesday, 10 November 2009
6pm to 8:30pm
EWEB North Building (EWEB Traing Rooms)
500 East 4th Avenue

The summary meeting agenda is copied below in text.

If you want input on Millrace daylighting, amount of public open space, river edge setback, riparian restoration - roads along the river - etc. this is an important meeting to share your voice!

In the Riverfront Master Plan, what should the balance be between making a great public space, on one hand, creating new urban development on another hand, and generating real estate money to help EWEB pay for the Roosevelt Operations Center, on yet another?

Second Tuesday meetings conflict with several neighborhood association board meetings. So if you _can_ come to the EWEB Riverfront, please do!

with best wishes,

Kevin Matthews
Friends of Eugene
