Light Rail Public Meetings

This isn't normally a topic that I would cover, but when I went out today, I found a door hanger notice for two public meetings to (quoting from the doorhanger) (emphasis mine) -
...learn about and provide input to the high-capacity transit study in the I-10 West study area...

The "I-10 West" study area roughly encompasses the area of 7th St. west to 99th Avenue and Buckeye Road north to Thomas Road.

The meetings will be held on October 23 from 6 p.m. - 9 p.m. at the Desert West Community Center, 6501 W. Virginia Ave. in Phoenix and on October 25 from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. at University Park's Safe Haven Room, 350 N. 10th Ave. in Phoenix.

My question - Why did they notify East Valley (i.e. - south Scottsdale) residents about West Valley public meetings?

There are light rail meetings in *this* area, and they are this week.

From Valley Metro's website -

October 10, 2007 Line Section 4 CAB Meeting, 3 p.m - 5 p.m., Operations and Maintenance Center (OMC), Jim Starz room, 670 S. 48th Street, Phoenix, AZ.

October 11, 2007 Line Section 5 CAB Meeting, 7:30 a.m. - 9:30 a.m., Escalante Community Center, 2150 E. Orange St., Tempe, AZ.

The info on the West Valley meetings can be found here.
