Second Meeting for Proposed Easton Garage/Bus Depot
Given the passionate responses brought on by the last meeting notice, I wanted to make sure that our readers were aware of the next public meeting for the proposed parking garage and bus depot in Easton on South Third Street.
In case you need a low-down on the purpose of the meeting, here is the following excerpt from the Express Times:
Easton is partnering with the Lehigh and Northampton Transportation Authority to build a two- or three-story parking deck atop a local and regional bus terminal. LANTA will bring Federal Transit Administration grants to the project, triggering an environmental review. LANTA Executive Director Armand Greco said the hearing is designed to gather input and identify possible environmental issues. A final environmental assessment should be available in April ahead of another public meeting in May, he said.
The details for the meeting are as follows:
Date: Thursday, February 18, 2010
Time: 6:00 – 8:00 p.m.
Location: 5th floor of Easton City Hall (City Council Chambers), 1 South Third St.
