Will there be both English and Spanish presentations provided?Yes, we are designing this open house to meet the needs of both our English speaking and Spanish speaking audiences.

How can I make my voice heard?

Metro is committed to ensuring that all participants can fairly and clearly ask questions, and share ideas, comments and concerns about this project. To provide a safe and equitable process during this community meeting, we are asking for your help. During the community meeting, please:

  • Turn cell phones off or set them to vibrate

  • Treat fellow community members, agency representatives, Metro staff and others with respect both during and after the meeting

  • Address all comments to Metro staff and consultants - not to other attendees

  • Do not block the view of other participants

  • Do not display large signs with sticks attached or banners or other promotional materials; signs must be no larger than 8 ½" X 11

We reserve the right to end the meeting at any point, if we are unable to conduct the meeting consistent with these guidelines.
