The Arlington Voice, in partnership with UT Arlington’s Institute of Transportation Engineers, will host a public forum at the end of May for citizens to learn about and weigh in on the city’s transportation future.

Four esteemed panelists representing all perspectives of this broad subject will participate in what is called the Arlington Public Transportation Forum.

Arlington Mayor Jeff Williams, radio talk show personality Mark Joeckel, business professional Buddy Saunders, and UTA Engineering Professor Dr. Saimak Ardekani have agreed to an hour-and-a-half public conversation to be held at UTA’s Lone Star Theater on May 25 starting at 6:30 p.m.

Moderated by Arlington Voice Publisher Zack Maxwell, the panel will address ongoing transportation developments, associated stigmas, financing, and the potential effects on the city’s economic and social future.

Throughout the conversation, opportunities will be afforded for audience members to address the panel with questions or comments.

The Arlington Public Transportation Forum is generously sponsored by the engineering firm Di Sciullo-Terry, Stanton & Associates Inc., one of Arlington’s longest-serving providers of engineering and surveying services.

Few tickets remain, as nearly all 450 available seats were reserved during pre-registration. Free tickets are available for reservation through the Arlington Voice’s website.
