Update:  The debate will be moderated by Arline Welty, an Uptown resident and sustainable transportation advocate.  The event is being organized by several Uptown residents, including Margo O'Hara and Ms. Welty, in partnership with Walk Bike Transit, a Chicago PAC focused on transportation issues.

  1. Is anyone going to this? I don't think I can make it but would like to see something special done with Montrose, especially east of Broadway. I lives just north of Montrose on SHeridan and whenever I wanted to bike the lakefront, I always took Montrose. Although it was just a couple blocks, sometimes battling those cars, especially at LSD was difficult.

  2. Not to worry Brianbobcat...
    Sedgewick is going to make Montrose a pedestrian friendly walkway. Evidently their developement will reduce traffic on Montrose.(If you believe their renderings.)

  3. It seems odd to me that there is no indication as to the organizer of this forum. Is it a credible entity like the Active Transportation Alliance or an individual citizen?

    If it is the latter, gosh, I can think of a few forums I want to organize on specific topics.

  4. UU can you find out who is moderating & who is sponsoring?

  5. Catherine,

    Why don't you just send your questions to the email address listed on the flier and post the response here?

    I would imagine that the UU volunteers are quite busy vetting info and comments that have been submitted, so any help readers can give them I am sure would be most appreciated.

  6. Catherine, we added the information on the moderator and the forum sponsors to the post.
