Idaho Rural Partnership Review in Glenns Ferry

02-Nov-2012

The Community Transportation Association of Idaho (CTAI) participated in the Idaho Rural Partnership Review this past spring. Now that the results are published, CTAI would like to invite the community to help continue the public transportation conversation.  

This past September interested community members attended a meeting to start the discussion on how to approach the many observations identified in the Rural Partnership Review.  This coming Wednesday we would like to invite every community member who would be interested in Public Transportation, Bike & Pedestrian access, and recreational trails to attend this brief meeting. In addition to the CTAI Mobility Manager, Ted Vanegas Bike-Ped & Transit Programs and Lori Porreca PhD, Community Planner with Federal Highways Administration will be in attendance to provide support to the community of Glenns Ferry. 

At our last meeting there was emphasis to include the following community groups to join us in this continued conversation. 

  • Youth & Youth Groups 
  • Education
  • Local Business
  • Local Church representative
  • Seniors 
  • Local government officials
  • Any interested community member

Public transportation is different for every community and does not necessarily mean buses.  Public transportation can be any means in which people get from point A to point B.  In the review community members identified many public transportation themes, pathways, sidewalks, senior center bus and much more.  The purpose of this hour meeting is to continue the conversation and break out into groups to help tackle the projects identified within the Idaho Rural Partnership Review.

Public is invited to attend:

Wednesday, November 7th
6:00 pm-7:30 pm
Glenns Ferry City Hall 
110 East 2nd Avenue
