SRTC At Minnehaha Event

I spent Saturday at the Minnehaha Neighborhood Celebration at Minnehaha Park talking to people about SRTC's Transportation Vision Project.

The event included a car show, and this big old boat was my favorite.

It also had music, a lot of social service agency booths, food, face painting, and lots more.

I got lots of good feedback. A lot of people asked when the North Spokane Corridor would be done, others complained about unpaved alleys, one woman suggested a moratorium on including art in transportation projects until more funding is available and one young man asked for transit service on Rambo Road north of Airway Heights.

This was my favorite visitor to my booth. He asked for scratching posts on buses and bus passes that don't require opposable thumbs to use.

I noticed that kitty has his claws out... Isn't Bob cute when he's a little kitten?

I'm convinced that deep down in their subconcious, all cats want to kill us.

It's not in Idaho. It's in north east Spokane. Did I post something that sounded like it's in Idaho?
