District 5 City Councilwoman Mary Beth Susman invites you to join her at a Town Hall on October 12

Councilwoman Susman will be holding a town hall on Thursday, October 12th, from 6:30 – 8:00 pm at Cableland.  Details on location/directions are below.

Rutt Bridges, author of Driverless Car Revolution, will be speaking on how autonomous vehicles will change our lives. Many experts believe AVs will be commonplace on our roads in the next 5-10 years. Rutt Bridges speaks extensively around the US on the potential impact of this technology. For a preview, here is a recent article on the subject from the Denver Post.

It is a prospect that poses questions for city builders, policy-makers, and all citizens. How will AVs affect city traffic and congestion? Will AVs compete with or complement current public transit systems? How will land use change as the need for parking goes down and the need for drop-off locations rise?

Councilwoman Susman will also provide an update on happenings in the district and the city and wants to hear what’s on your mind.

Town Hall Details: The town hall will be held on October 12th from 6:30 – 8:00 pm at Cableland.
