RCA October Meeting- District 18 State Delegation + Montrose East Project Manager

After a restful summer break, the RCA hits the ground running with our October general meeting featuring our own District 18 delegation: Senator Rich Madaleno, and Representatives Jeff Waldstreicher, Al Carr, and Ana Sol Gutierrez. This is a pretty big deal, getting all of them here at once ready to address our concerns. Let’s pack the house and show them our neighborhood matters.

We will be discussing Montrose Parkway East, the Garrett Park Road bridge, and a new MARC station and pedestrian crossing at Wyaconda Road in addition to your other state level concerns.

Also, Jon Hutchings, the project manager for the Montrose Parkway East project will be on hand to give a brief overview of the planned roadway and will answer any questions.

Please join us Thursday, October 5th, 8pm at the Veirs Mill Park community center located near the corner of Garrett Park Rd and Beach Drive.
