After Steering Committee member Paula Bienenfeld made a request for materials, Staff has now informed the Steering Committee that additional materials will be available soon:

 Dan Hardy will have a draft Appendix on transportation available for next week’s meeting. The draft may address “all details regarding traffic modeling, PAMR, LATR, Metro, etc.”

 And the design guidelines are “making progress on a draft” which should be available “early in 2009.”
