Event: Car-Free Day Planning Meeting

On Thursday Feb 15 at 8pm, we will have the kickoff all-organizers meeting for Car-Free Drive Days 2007. It'll take place in the Common Room at 1707 Charles St. (the Turks building on the Drive, around the side throiugh the gate). If you may be interested in taking an organizing role for this summer's Drive Days, we'd love it if you could attend.

We are looking at up to THREE Car-Free Drive Days this summer, in June, July and August. The City is behind us on this, and it's a very positive move. The ultimate aim is to turn the Fests over to the people, and spread out the "programming" so effort does not need to increase drastically. Still and all, it's going to require lots of hands and minds and hearts to bring this off, and if last year's effort is any indicator...we have those, and our work/play force is growing exponentially.

With climate change the buzz everywhere, Car-Free Drive Days are the perfect opportunity to get everyone locally involved in changing the climate for the better. And awareness around the Gateway Project has also suddenly skyrocketed, so no doubt we will be bringing that issue way into the forefront and showing the City what a car-free street can offer, as opposed to a traffic-ridden thoroughfare.
It's all very exciting, and we are stoked to re-create The Drive yet again as the paradise we know is possible.

RSVP if you can.
