SWAG and Chamber Discuss Transportation ChallengesApril 6th, 2015 by gainesvillechamber
Last week, Vice President of Public Policy Kamal Latham and Communications Director Alyssa Brown visited with SouthWest Advocacy Group board members Joan Canton, Dorothy Thomas and Dorothy Benson and discussed current transportation challenges in the SWAG area. Safety and capacity enhancements on the SW 20th Avenue bridge were among key issues cited. Chamber representatives, SWAG community members, and an elected official walked across the SW 20th Avenue bridge in November 2014 to highlight the bridge’s needs in the run-up to the Moving Alachua County Forward ballot referendum. Last week’s meeting was held in the SWAG Family Resource Center, which serves people in need.
