BACKGROUND:

Media are invited to a briefing concerning City preparations for the 2015 UCI Road World Cycling Championships.

How will the city’s budget be impacted? What roads will be paved? What plans are being made related to tourism and economic development?  Will any city services be impacted while thousands of visitors are in town? What about licenses and permits? Are city gateways being improved? Will fire and emergency services be impacted? 

City officials will discuss these matters during the first in a series of planned media briefings designed to convey information as the event approaches.
