Eating up the miles

       A few score of brave souls battled icy streets to eat free pizza and check out the colorful displays and other information at the Pikes Peak Area Council of Governments (PPACG) Regional Transportation Plan three-hour open house Dec. 11. Citizen comments were requested to help determine future projects. One big future issue will be money. Several exhibits showed that transportation costs are outstripping the current funding sources. Alternative transportation means, such as bikes and buses, are receiving greater planning focus.
