From Emory: Greetings to all:  Please mark your calendars for our next quarterly community meeting scheduled for Tuesday, June 5, from 6:30-8:00 PM., in the North Decatur Building, Room 155.  I have attached directions to the Lowergate South parking deck, which has a walkway from the deck onto the second floor of the North Decatur Building.

This will be the last community meeting before the July 31 vote on the regional transportation referendum so I encourage you to come participate in the informational discussion on how this will impact the Clifton Corridor.  Please extend this invitation to others in your neighborhood who may want to participate.  If you have any questions in the meantime, please feel free to call me at 404-727-5312.  I look forward to seeing you next month.
