Carrboro Transportation Forum is Thursday

The Town of Carrboro is holding a forum for the discussion of the Carrboro Downtown Transportation Study. This is a great chance for folks to hear about different options that the Town is looking at. Possibilities include limiting cars on Weaver Street, installing roundabouts on Main Street, bigger sidewalks and more on-street parking. Come check it out Thursday Dec. 2 at 6:30 at the Century Center.

Here's the invite on the Town website (www.townofcarrboro.com):

Community Breakfast

Not sure who is organizing this, it was on the NC Peace and Justice Update List.

COMMUNITY BREAKFAST
Saturday December 4, 10:00am, Weaver St Market, Carrboro

Friends: One of the most popular themes when progressives get together and discuss what needs to be done is the need for more social occasions to meet informally. To that end, we are inviting you to the first social activist Breakfast, at Weaver St Market on December 4th at 10am (we hope to make them monthly). We will have a brief check-in, where people can share concerns and announce projects and upcoming events for social change. Otherwise, it will just be an occasion to network and socialize. We would like to encourage the participation of as broad a spectrum of people as possible, so please forward this to any friends active for progressive social change.
