Just because gas prices have dropped doesn’t mean Ohio should build more highways. Recently, 700 Sierra Club members commented on the Ohio Department of Transportation’s (ODOT) 2014 Statewide Transit Needs Study. Now we have the opportunity to weigh in on the specific projects that ODOT will fund in 2015-2018.
We hope you can join the Sierra Club for our annual Chapter Retreat. As one of the largest and most influential environmental organizations in the state, this is the time each year where we celebrate our victories, renew our spirits, and make our plans the year ahead. All are welcome, and meals will be provided for members who register.
Help Stand Up for Green Transportation!
February 17th, 2011
Our transportation system is built with our tax dollars, and it has us addicted to oil, leaving too many Americans without safe, convenient, and affordable transportation choices like safe walking, biking, and public transit.
Members of the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives are coming to Columbus this Saturday, February 19th, for a Field Hearing on transportation reform.
We want the room filled with people who care about smart transportation choices that reduce our dependence on oil and shield our communities from transportation-related pollution.
We will meet on Saturday, February 19th at 9:15 AM in the Ohio Statehouse Rotunda in Columbus. The hearing starts at 9:30, and we want to walk into the hearing room together to demonstrate our solidarity. Please wear t-shirts, stickers, and buttons that show your support for biking, transit, and other green modes of transportation.
Now is a critical time to demand transportation reform — hope to see you this Saturday! Talking Points for House Transportation and Infrastructure Field Hearings 2.11
Thanks for all you do!
