The Hurricanes will hold a parking summit at the RBC Center on Aug. 20 at 6:30 p.m., and RBC Center general manager Dave Olsen said today that any fans who have participated in the discussion here -- and those who haven't, for that matter -- are welcome to attend.
"We're not sitting on our hands," Olsen said. "We're addressing it. We did a survey, we collected the information and we invited the people who responded to the summit."
Olsen said 2,000 season-ticket holders responded to the team's survey.
UPDATE, 1:44 p.m.: Here's the email that went out to season-ticket holders who responded to the team's survey this afternoon:
PARKING TOWN HALL MEETING
August 20, 2008
6:30 p.m. RBC Center (Enter at VIP)
Dear Season Ticket Holder,
Thank you so much for your participation in our recent Parking and Traffic Analysis Survey. It goes without saying that your responses were very helpful in our endeavor to understand the various dynamics we face during events.
Town Hall Meeting
The survey was the first step in the process. To help us with the next phase in this process, we invite you to come out and attend a Town Hall meeting, where you will have an opportunity to share your thoughts further with us to help define areas of concern.
It goes on to ask attendees to RSVP. While that invitation was sent to season-ticket holders, it has since been extended to readers of this blog, so it's only polite to RSVP here if you want to go.
