The Springfield-Sangamon County Regional Planning Commission wants you to leave the car at home next week. Instead, think about biking, walking, running or using the bus.
Curb Your Car Week begins Monday and several business are offering incentives. There is also a group ride from Washington Park on Wednesday morning, May 21. A night ride that goes through downtown is on Saturday May 24.
Last month, a local panel put together a list of recommendations designed to make Sangamon County governmental units work better and, in some cases, save money. Voters helped create the Citizens' Efficiency Commission of Sangamon County through an earlier referendum. They have another chance to keep the effort going in the March election.
