June notes

Red Bull Air Races necessitates our closure from Thursday, June 3 through Sunday, June 6. We will reopen Monday, June 7 at 10 a.m. Our friend Steve Roach with the League of Michigan Bicyclists asked us to pass the word along on a hearing in Grosse Pointe about bike lanes. Here are the details: Designated Bike Routes in the Pointes: Open Community Forum for the GP Chamber's Live Well in GP Designated Bike Routes Initiative Wednesday, June 9 6:30 -7:30 p.m. Connelly Auditorium @ Beaumont Hospital, 468 Cadieux, Grosse Pointe. For more information, please contact the G P Chamber 313 881-4722 or www.grossepointechamberofcommerce.org

There will be another hearing for Complete Streets up in Lansing on June 10. Our friends with the coalition are doing great work, but make sure your legislator knows that his or her constituents support this. There are organizations pushing hard against it, so we need to remain vocal. Follow their work here.

Our June tours feature some old favorites (Eastern Market, Architecture, Grandmont Rosedale and Creekside) as well as some newbies (Gallery Scene, Family, Public Art). They are starting to fill up, so check your calendar and choose one for the month! Read more and register here.

Hope everybody had a great Memorial Day Weekend!
