MEETINGS  

*** Monday January 26 Sierra Club Program Meeting- "Dirt- The Movie"
- This film- narrated by Jaime Lee Curtis brings to life the
environmental, economic, social and political impact that the soil
has.  For more information, see http://www.dirtthemovie.org/

*** Monday February 23 Sierra Club Program Meeting- Memphis area
transportation plans and issues- "There's always a lot going on"
related to transportation plans.  Most of it happens "quietly", in the
background, led by staff and officials of the city, county, state,
Federal, MPO (Metropolitan Planning Organization), and MATA (Memphis
Area Transit Authority).  The Feb 23 Sierra Club meeting will
highlight some plans underway, including 1) the MPO's Long Range
Regional Transportation Plan (RTP), 2) Memphis city's budget and
pedestrian projects which may be included or excluded, and 3) programs
under discussion for the next Federal Transportation Bill. There's
over $100 million spent on transportation projects by local
governments every year.

*** NOTE- The Memphis MPO has an online tool you can use for giving
comments on regional and local transportation issues you want
addressed.  This tool has been available for almost 3 months, and they
are "closing it down" after January 31, so if you have a chance, go
look at it NOW and give your input.  The site is-
