After publicly stating last month that they want to give residents a louder voice in the talks surrounding a planned project to build express lanes on Highway 85, the Saratoga City Council announced an opportu- nity where residents could do just that. The city is holding a community workshop at 6:30 p.m. on April 21 at the Joan Pisani Community Center to receive input from residents on issues related to the project. But the goal, according to Councilman Chuck Page, is to go beyond a complaint session. "We definitely want people to give us their thoughts ... all the things that are wrong about this," Page said. "Then we're going to give people an opportunity at their table in small groups to come up with solutions ... practical kinds of solutions, not the pie-in-the-sky kind of stuff."
