Omni Resources is buying pizza, so no need to rush home for supper first. Instead, rush down to The Avenue HQ for supper and civic hacking! If you have a favorite beverage that goes well with pizza, bring it on down. Or bring a few hacking snacks to share with the group. If we run out of munchables and drinkables, we'll pass the hat around, and I'll go on a munchies run to keep the civic hackers fueled up.

(If you want a more informative parking resource, maybe you could start working on a parking project at tonight’s civic hacking session… :)
Ross' update on parking: "Filling the parking meter in downtown Appleton will cost less and be more convenient starting [June 27]...hours of enforcement at meters downtown will be...9:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. Meters will still be enforced Monday – Saturday with free parking on-street and in ramps on Sundays. Also as part of the parking restructuring, all on-street meters north of Washington Street will see the rate change from $0.75/hr down to $0.20/hr. The time limit for parking will go from two hours to 12 hours at those meters..."
Mike's update on Appleton traffic tonight: Apparently civic hackers will need to be aware of a downtown parade starting at 6 PM; traffic and parking issues, maybe. Per the Post-Crescent -- "Join us today as we bring you the seventh annual Downtown Appleton Children’s Parade, starting at 6 p.m.! The old-fashioned parade along College Avenue in downtown Appleton is full of cute, costumed kids and their parents."
If you’re wondering what will happen at tonight’s event, check out last week’s post “Civic Hacking Event: July 22, Appleton, The Avenue HQ.” If you're not sure what civic hacking is, check out a few of the other posts on this blog.
NE Wisconsin Slack channel and the DHMN mailing list. Probably a few people have mentioned it on Twitter or Facebook. If you see this post, please consider letting other people know about the event via Twitter, FB, emails or whatever social media and communications channels you use. And bring a few people with you to AHQ!
I’m planning to be at AHQ around 5 PM, so if you can’t stay too late and want to come down a little early, feel free to show up before 6 PM.
See you at AHQ!
