A public meeting will be held at CitySpace, 100 5th Street NE, on December 17th at 5:30 PM. Suggestions and input from the public will be collected at this meeting. Nelson/Nygaard Transit Consultants will then present their findings to City Council that same day at a 7:00 PM meeting in Council Chambers .
