The City of Evanston and the Chicago Transit Authority invite residents to a CTA open house tonight to share concerns about the CTA’s Purple Line and its seven Evanston stations. The open house will be held from 6 to 8:30 p.m. at the Fleetwood-Jourdain Center, 1655 Foster St.

City officials say they’re hoping for a big turnout to demonstrate the level of local interest in the line, which is one of the most lightly used in the CTA system.

For individuals who are unable to attend the open house, comments on the CTA vision study project can be provided by e-mail at NorthRedPurple@transitchicago.com; by calling 312/681-3091; or by sending written comments to: Jeff Wilson, Chicago Transit Authority Government and Community Relations, PO Box 7567, Chicago, IL 60680-7567.
