Daily readers of this blog know all about the Ravitch Commission & the task it faces in coming up with recommended strategies to fund MTA capital projects and operating needs over the next ten years. For those who are unfamiliar with the commission, click here to read my initial entry on it.
On Thursday evening the Tri-State Transportation Campaign’s “Mobilizing The Region” blog broke the news of Ravitch Commission hearings being scheduled. Here are the complete details:
Monday, September 15th
Eisner-Lubin Auditorium, NYU Kimmel Center
60 Washington Square South
Session 1: 10am-12:30pm
Session 2: 1:30pm – 5pm
Monday, September 22nd
Ceremonial Chambers, Nassau County Executive Building
1550 Franklin Ave, 2nd Floor
Wednesday, September 24th
Westchester County Center
198 Central Ave
Testimony is by invitation only. Public comment can be sent in writing to Ravitch Commission, 633 Third Ave, 38th floor, New York, NY 10017.
I don’t agree with the testimony being by invitation only. I really would love to hear their logic on this decision. I will look into whether or not you can attend the hearings just to observe.
