Southeast PlanCOS event, now logically located, is tonight


  • Allen Beauchamp
Word is the PlanCOS event at the Lincoln Center Wednesday night was a hoot.

And you know millennials were in the house by the looks of this bike rack out front. (Now, what does that tell us about how to build infrastructure that meets the younger generation's transportation needs?)

If you've got nothing but time on your hands, here's a video of the entire event, including the audience brainstorming some pretty neat ideas for our fair city.

If you're bummed you missed it, or you simply cannot get enough of civic engagement, there's another opportunity to tell city planners about all of your dreams and desires tonight. Head over to the YMCA at 2190 Jet Wing Dr for "PlanCOS: Heading Southeast" — an event that earned some cringes in its early stages, but that's now got a venue in the right part of town.
