Beavercreek Council to Discuss Civil Rights Issue

Jul 22, 2013


Tonight, the Beavercreek  City Council will hear from its attorney regarding the recent finding by the Federal Highway Administration, alleging that the city violated the 1964 Civil Rights Act.

Two years ago, the Dayton RTA wanted to add bus stops on Pentagon Boulevard near the Mall at Fairfield Commons and the newly constructed Soin Medical Center. That request was unanimously denied by Beavercreek's City Council.

The Federal Highway Administration's Office of Civil Rights has ordered the City of Beavercreek to revisit its decision denying RTA's request to add several bus stops near the Mall at Fairfield Commons. The FHA says Beavercreek's decision is in violation of the Civil Rights Act.

A new Clark County public transit system was launched on Monday. The new bus service will allow riders from remote parts of the county as well as the city, to connect to destinations all over the Miami Valley area.
