Westside Transportation Community Dialogue [Rescheduled]

At the March 31, 2015 WSCCOG Board Meeting, it was announced that WSCCOG will be hosting two transportation community dialogues in May 2015 to inform the community on WSCCOG’s current efforts in preparation for Metro’s Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) update and the potential sales tax ballot measure in 2016. These two community dialogues have been postponed until further notice.

These two events were scheduled to allow the public to provide comment to the Mobility Matrix. Over the past eight months, the Mobility Matrix project list has been developed for Metro in preparation for the Long Range Transportation Plan and potential new ballot measure.  The WSCCOG is rescheduling the community dialogues after key information from Metro is received, which is due in June 2015. The WSCCOG will conduct the community dialogues at a more appropriate time. Meanwhile, feel free to refer to pertinent information related to transportation in the Westside in the following links provided below.
