TRURO - A local transit system will be the topic when a public meeting is held Wednesday at the Truro Farmers Market at 4 p.m.
The meeting will be facilitated by Kenda MacLellan, a candidate for the Town of Truro's' Ward 3 in October's municipal election, and will seek to bring together people with ‘information, ideas and the desire for action on the subject of local transit.'
"Residents of Truro and the surrounding area have had this item on their agenda for some time but now is the time to make local, sustainable transportation a priority and a reality," said MacLellan, in an email. "The need for local transit will be magnified with the opening of the new hospital and civic centre, and the closing of Acadian Lines."
MacLellan is hoping that people will come out with fresh ideas and an action plan that "we can take to the elected officials and to businesses who are able to invest." "People may have been told their idea is impossible, or that there is nothing we can do," she wrote. "It's time to put our heads together and find something that will work."
