Today the UrbanCSA’s own Tom Howard was interviewed by Tom Spear of CBC Radio and given the chance to voice our organization’s support for the Brentwood TOD. Sound bytes will be played during CBC Radio One’s news segments this evening and anybody interested can listen in at the bottom of every hour. The webcast can be found here, while those of you feeling old-school can tune your dial to 1010 AM or 99.1 FM. Be sure to listen in at 5:30, 6:30 or 7:30 to hear from Tom!
Even better than this exposure is the invitation for Tom to be interviewed again, this time during the CBC’s live on-air morning segment shortly after 7:00 am on Monday, December 5th. The station will be doing a piece exploring both sides of the Brentwood TOD plan, with both supporters (that’s us!) and opponents getting to voice their thoughts, giving the city a final dose of information before the plan is presented to City Council later in the day.
Because of the vociferous opposition to this redevelopment, the UrbanCSA will be preparing a short presentation of our support for the plan and will also be speaking on behalf of the U of C’s chapter of the Institute for Transportation Engineers. If you’d like to get involved, or for more information, just send us an e-mail.
