Melissa, you should check the address of the FACT screening meeting tonight. I've been in the neighborhood for well over 40 yrs and I've never heard of Church St. between Grand and Irving!

Thanks Patch for advertising the "PLAZA" screening last night. It was a lovely evening, engaged in with an animated Q&A after. Melissa Kozser is right: FAB pushed the plaza, but FAB is not a part of the neighborhood debate, and wasn't at the community forum last night

Darlinda has it right. FAB is not a part of the neighborhood. I'm not really sure what it does, except act as a gofer for the DOT Commissioner. Does anyone know where FAB comes from and/or what it's up to?
