Unfortunately, those of us that use public transportation won't be able 
to attend the meeting. The last WES train leaves Wilsonville at 6:58 pm 
and the last 96 bus leaves North Wilsonville at 8:28 pm. I even checked 
Wilsonville's SMART service and their last bus to Tualatin leaves at 
8:07 pm...
