Last week I wrote about the new City Club report (PDF 5.5M) on transportation governance.
I’d like to dig in a little deeper this week, starting with finances. Excerpted from the report is this chart showing how transportation dollars flow into and through the region today, and how City Club would suggest reorganizing this.
Fundamentally is matches what I think should be a national change in policy, giving more authority to MPOs (Metropolitan Planning Organizations) and a bit less to State DOTs.
You can learn more and participate at two meetings this week: discussion at City Club on the evening of March 3rd (5:30-7pm at the Club offices as 901 SW Washington) and the vote on the report at the Friday Forum on March 5th (11:45 at the Governor Hotel).
