A pair of public transit meetings
This came in as "COORDINATED PLAN 2007 PUBLIC MEETINGS OCARTS AREA", and it's basically an announcement of a couple of public meetings ("hearings" suggests greater formality than this). Here's what's coming:
COTPA (Central Oklahoma Transportation and Parking Authority) requests your participation at a meeting listed below to help formulate the Coordinated Plan for federal funding. This includes three programs: 5310 (Elderly Individuals and Individuals with Disabilities), 5316 (Job Access and Reverse Commute, or JARC), and 5317 (New Freedom). The Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA-LU) requires that projects selected for funding be derived from a locally developed, coordinated public transit-human services transportation plan ("coordinated plan") beginning in FY 2006 for JARC and in FY 2007 for the 5310 and New Freedom programs. Your input and suggestions are important in order to identify the transportation gaps in your area. In accordance with the federal law, COTPA will create the coordinated plan that takes into consideration the needs of elderly and low-income persons as well as persons with disabilities.

WHAT WILL THE COORDINATED PLAN INCLUDE?
Disclosure: This was sent to me by Tom Elmore of NATI, presumably in the expectation that I'd give it an airing. Which I did.Posted at 3:02 PM to City Scene
