On Thursday, November 21 at CitySpace on the DTM there will be a public meeting on the Belmont Bridge replacement/enhancement project. Some want to do something unique and special here, like not have a bridge at all but an underpass, or something along the lines of what NYC did with its High Line Park (repurposing an old platform railway line into a pedestrian park) with a vision of some kind of pedestrian-friendly link between Belmont and the DTM, while others just want the aging highway-style bridge replaced. Come out and find out what all the hoop-la is about and express your opinion. 6pm-7:30pm, 100 5th Street NE. Contact Neighborhood Development Services at (434) 970-3182 for more information.
