For those of you who can’t get enough of our SRTC Board meetings, you get a bonus this month. SRTC and Kootenai Metropolitan Planning Organization (KMPO), the Metropolitan Planning Organization for Kootenai County, ID, have called a special joint Board Meeting for Thursday, March 31 from 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. at Garden Plaza, 545 N. Garden Plaza in Post Falls.
The KMPO Board contracts with SRTC for day-to-day administrative and planning duties.
We’re getting the two boards together because 2010 Census results show population increases in both Spokane and Kootenai counties. That could mean some implications for each area, although we’re not sure what kind of implications yet.
Representatives from the Federal Highways Administration, Federal Transit Administration, and the U.S. Census Bureau will make presentations and answer questions from the Boards at the meeting, related to affects the 2010 Census may have on the two counties. Members of the public are welcome to attend, as always, so take a nice drive out to lovely Post Falls at the end of this month. A meeting agenda will be posted here soon.
