The CTA is holding a series of public meetings to gather input on the proposed Circle Line. According to their news release, "The meetings are part of the Alternatives Analysis study — the first step in pursuing federal funding for major transit projects. The Alternatives Analysis study is designed to examine all the transit options available and determine a locally preferred alternative." Tonight's meeting will be from 6pm to 8pm at the Mexican Fine Arts Center Museum, 1852 W. 19th St., in the West Wing Auditorium. More information here.
