If you’re wondering what it is we do here at SRTC, you should come to our ‘Planning Assumptions’ meeting tomorrow (Tuesday) evening. Myself and our Transportation Planning Supervisor Anna will be hosting the meeting to walk anyone who is interested through the process of how transportation planning work. That includes how SRTC is staffed, where we get our direction and work assignments, how computer ‘modeling’ programs work, the basic steps involved in a transportation study, and how air quality analysis plays into transportation planning.
We do this meeting every year to reach out to members of the public who may be interested in transportation but are not familiar with how decisions are made behind the scenes.
The meeting is from 4-6 p.m. Our presentation doesn’t take that long, so if you come down, you most likely won’t be stuck here for two hours. We do want to provide plenty of time for questions or to talk one-on-one with you though if you’re interested. The meeting will be in SRTC’s conference room at 221 W. First Ave., Suite 310.
