OUR VIEW: Voice your opinion on transportation

Anyone who braves Gwinnett roadways during rush hour knows how important transportation issues are for the county and the metro area in general. On Monday night, randomly selected Gwinnett residents will be able to participate in a town hall phone meeting with Gwinnett Chairwoman Charlotte Nash and Norcross Mayor Bucky Johnson, Gwinnett’s representatives on the Regional Roundtable, which is setting the list of transportation projects to be voted on in March.

The goal of Monday’s 7:15 p.m. town hall meeting, Nash said, is “to learn what regional and local projects will help Gwinnett residents most.” If you’re interested in the meeting, you don’t have to worry about the randomness of being selected. Anyone can participate by calling 888-886-6603 and entering pin number 16724.

We often hear from Gwinnettians that they haven’t been told of issues that end up affecting them, but this is a great chance to be at the forefront of these transportation issues and to learn how fellow residents feel about it as well.

Unlike regular town hall meetings, this one involves no travel. Just call the number and participate from the comfort of your own home.
