The city is looking for the public's input on its 10-year Transportation Action Plan, newly underway. One of three citywide workshops will occur Downtown on Oct. 19, 5-7 p.m. in 1st floor conference rooms at Butler Square, 100 N. 6th St.

The plan will address transportation options and issues such as pedestrians, bicycles, transit, automobiles and freight and, once completed, it will include a Web-based fact book, a Downtown "transit and street operations plan" and new street design guidelines "that reflect the characteristics of the surroundings," according to a city press release.

The workshops will include presentations on transit challenges facing the city, followed by "structured dialogue," stated the press release.

To learn more, call Charleen Zimmer at 673-3166 or show up at the Downtown workshop. Similar workshops will be held Oct. 18 at the North Commons Recreation Center, 1801 James Ave. N. and Oct. 26 at the Keewaydin Recreation Center, 3000 E. 53rd St.
