Invite to screening tour of "Beyond the Motor City"
As part of the national "Blueprint America Screening Tour", Reconnecting Lee, along with other partners, is hosting a community screening of the PBS special, "Beyond the Motor City". The intent of this national initiative is to use the film to raise questions—and seek answers—about the future of transportation in America. City planners, urban growth experts, cyclists, commuters, students, policymakers, and concerned citizens across the country are invited to join THE BLUEPRINT AMERICA SCREENING TOUR to energize debate on:
* New hopes for accessible, clean and modern mass transit in America
* The role of cities, and consumers, in shaping the next generation of transportation systems
* A roadmap for revitalizing the way we move through our cities and neighborhoods
The event will be held on Thursday, June 24 at 2:30-4:00 at the offices of the Realtor Association of Greater Fort Meyers & the Beach, on 2840 Winkler Ave. in Fort Myers.
