Cool Cleveland: Community Forum on Sales Tax

From the Cool Cleveland newsletter.
There is a link at the bottom of the notice for those who drive downtown.
What is not listed are the numerous alternative ways one could travel without having to find parking - after all, it is downtown. Being downtown means there are plenty of buses coming and going. Plus, all of the rail lines come downtown.
Check out the RTA website for schedules, or you can use the trip planner.

Join the Cool Cleveland Forum
On the proposed Cuyahoga County sales tax for convention center/medical mart

You are invited Join your Cool Cleveland colleagues at this free and open Community Forum on July 12, 2007 from noon to 1:30PM at the Cleveland Public Library, 325 Superior Avenue N.E. in Downtown Cleveland, in the Louis Stokes Wing Auditorium. Map of parking here.

We want to hear your questions and opinions. While a number of subject matter experts will be invited to be in the audience as resources in the fields of government, economic development and convention centers, this Community Forum is designed to allow the public to ask questions and raise issues about the 1/4% sales tax recently proposed by the Cuyahoga County Commissioners to raise money for a yet-to-be-determined convention center and attached medical mart. There will be no panels, no presentations and no speakers. After a brief outline of the issue, the public will be invited to step up to the microphones and raise questions and issues, which will be transcribed and then posted to, and the Meet.The.Bloggers* network of top regional blog sites.
