Chance To Tell The Airport What You Think About Their Plan

The Department of Transportation and Public Facilities sent out a press release saying there would be an online public Open House March 22 - April 5, 2013. 

The DOT usually has a very professional public input process with lots of posters, lots of people explaining.  If people have minor changes that they can accommodate within their plan, they seem to be receptive.  But even if 80-90% of the public input is opposed to the project - like putting Bragaw/Elmore through the university land - that won't stop what they want to do.  They'll just put some make up on it, but they'll do what they planned.  At least that's my experience. 

Anyway, here's the notice.  I'm not sure if there are any actual in-person sessions, I would think so, but if it's at the airport and you stay more than 30 minutes you'll have to pay for parking.  Here's the press release:
