A public hearing on the Barnum Station will be held on Tuesday, February 7 at Great Oaks Charter School, 510 Barnum Ave. Doors will open at 6 p.m. so residents can review displays and have questions answered by technical staff. A formal presentation highlighting the project and findings of the EIE will start at 6:30 p.m. The public is invited to attend the meeting and provide comments on the EIE. In the event of heavy snow, the meeting will be moved to February 14 (same time and location).
