TRANSPORTATION SUMMITS - UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY TO HELP DETERMINE THE FUTURE OF RIVERSIDE COUNTY TRANSPORTATION

The Riverside County Transportation Commission (RCTC) is seeking public input to guide the County's transportation planning process. A strategic review is underway and the public is invited to attend a series of transportation summits where they can share their vision for the future of mobility in the County. The goal of the strategic assessment is to assess existing plans, funding capacity, public opinion, and priorities in order to develop a foundation for future decision-making. Public input is critical to successful planning and assists RCTC in identifying the public's desire for current and future transportation needs. Identifying needs, however, is only one part of the process. Developing an effective transportation system requires ongoing investment in long-term solutions. Finding a way to pay for what the community wants means setting priorities and making choices - this requires input from stakeholders.

Now is the time to plan for the future, to develop effective solutions, and to shape the transportation landscape for the first half of the 21st Century. Be part of the discussion!

Attend one of the RCTC Transportation Summits and share your vision of a future that will make Riverside County an even better place to live, work, and play.
