Important Public Forum on Traffic & Development on Annapolis Neck

Tuesday, June 3
7 p.m.
Key Auditorium
St. John's College
Sponsored by the Annapolis Neck Peninsula Federation and the Anne Arundel Sierra Club, the event is spurred by several recent, massive traffic gridlocks that crippled the Annapolis peninsula even while, at this time, major residential and retail developments are being proposed. 
Experts will describe the challenges drivers face on Forest Drive, the Annapolis peninsula's main arterial, and review proposed solutions. They will explain what it takes to design an efficient, safe road. Other issues will also be discussed, especially school capacity and environmental concerns.
