Normal paid the McLean County Regional Planning Commission $54,000 as their last meeting: https://blnnews.com/2020/06/13/normals-asininity/
I previously wrote about Julie Hile’s involvement with the MCRPC here: https://blnnews.com/2020/05/21/progressive-julie-hile/
I received a copy of the contract Hile signed with the MCRPC. See it here: Vision_Zero_Contract-HG-20190619_(Final_Executed)_redacted
The contract was sign in July of 2019, so much of this should already be happening. Your local elites are probably working on this now.
Culture Change? Transformative? Haven’t we played this game before?
This is laughable. When taxpayers pay for it nothing is confidential.
Since the contract expires in November and progress was likely hindered by COVID, expect acceleration or an extension of time.
To save lives, maybe they could start with bicyclists and joggers who run red lights. Whatever they devise to fundamentally change transportation it will cost you money and probably time. Expect lower speed limits “to keep you safe”.
Of course, if Black Lives Matter wins, the police won’t be around to enforce it.
