evening agenda

Brent Finnegan -- March 11th, 2008

There are a lot of things happening in Harrisonburg this evening. Maybe too many. I know of at least five events open to the public, three of which start at 7.

The public meeting about the proposed redesign to exit 247 runs from 4-7 p.m. “at the VDOT Harrisonburg Residency Office, which is located just off I-81 at exit 251. That’s one exit farther north than the one targeted for major changes.” (from NBC 29)

Mountain Top Removal: a documentary screening and discussion at Court Square Theater. The filmmaker and one of the people featured in the film will be there to talk about it afterward (7 p.m.).

JMU Town Hall Meeting: Peace in the Middle East: A Town Hall Meeting hosted by the JMU Debate Team. “Speak your mind and enter into a meaningful discussion about the United States and the Middle East concerning security, policy and the future.” 7 p.m., Memorial Hall

The fate of those trees in front of Cally’s is still undecided. The DNR reports, “A proposal to allow appeals of decisions by the Tree Advisory Panel to the City Council will be taken up at tonight’s meeting.” (7 p.m.)

On top of all that, Clementine is having team trivia night, starting at 9 p.m.

I’d like to make it out to all of these events, but that would be physically impossible.

    The fate of the trees in front of Cally’s has been decided by the tree committee under the existing ordinance. The ordinance change under consideration will be purely prospective.
    Thanks – Charlie

    Corrected. Thanks, Charlie.

    I’ d like to make a few of these, but I’ll definitely be at the Mountain Top Removal. Should be very interesting!

    I’m also torn. I’ll be moderating this one: JMU Town Hall Meeting: Peace in the Middle East: A Town Hall Meeting hosted by the JMU Debate Team. 7PM Memorial Hall.

    But, I’m thrilled to see another community dialogue happening at the theater and know there has been a lot of effort by thoughtful people to make that a meaningful event.

    In the bigger picture, this is a good problem to have.

    I’m with you, Kai. This is an exciting time to be in Harrisonburg. And by all indications, the vibrancy will continue to increase.

  6. Justin says:

    The quiz night at Clementine’s is not for the faint of brain (Hello, Josh, we’re drinking beer at this place man!). Nor those with any sort of schedule. If we go back, it will be to the 7:30pm show.
