On February 29th, the Southwest Corridor Steering Committee will be asked to make two important decisions regarding next steps for the project:

  2. Will an underground light rail tunnel directly to the PCC Sylvania campus continue to be studied?

Take the survey at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/SWCPJan2016 that will help inform the steering committee's February 29th decision.  Your input helps steering committee members better understand how these decisions will impact the public and what factors you feel are most important for them to consider.
