What do scooters and plastic bags have in common?

Tuesday, February 26, 2019 by Tai Moses

It’s easy to tell that Common Ground for Texans loves lively conversation. Just take the Austin nonprofit group’s latest topic for public discussion: “Scooters, Plastic Bags, Development: What’s the Right Amount of Regulation?” Who could resist diving into that? From the seemingly unregulated proliferation of electric scooters to the plastic bag ban to the land development code, the overarching theme of how much regulation is the right amount is bound to get people engaged and talking – hopefully in a civil manner. This free community event will feature two City Council members on opposite sides of the scooter question – District 10’s Alison Alter and District 6’s Jimmy Flannigan – and takes place Saturday, March 2, from 2-4 p.m. at Old Quarry Branch Library, 7051 Village Center.
