|March 25, 2009||Posted by jamie under Transportation & Ped Safety||
Since the Rincon Hill neighborhood hosts the hub of multi-modal transit in the Bay Area (the Transbay Transit Center and nearby BART, Caltrain, Amtrak pick-up and ferry boats at the Ferry building), transportation is always going to be a topic of high interest for Rincon Hill residents. The Metropolitan Transportation Commission has decided to re-open public comment for the 2035 Transportation Plan due to some new financial projections and other changes.
March 25, 2009… MTC staff presented the recommended changes to the Draft Transportation 2035 Plan at today’s Commission meeting. The recommended changes include technical revisions to the 25-year revenue forecasts, updates to transit related financial forecasts, and recommendations to address transit sustainability. To view and/or download the PowerPoint presentation describing the recommended changes to the Draft Plan and revisions to Appendix 1-Projects By County, go to the March 25 Commission meeting agenda: http://apps.mtc.ca.gov/events/agendaView.akt?p=1250
The public is invited to provide comments on these changes to the Draft Plan. The comment period starts on March 25, 2009 and closes at 4 p.m. on April 8, 2009. Written comments must be received at MTC by 4 p.m. on Wednesday, April 8, 2009 via mail at 101 Eighth Street, Oakland, CA 94607, Attn: Public Information, via E-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, or faxed to MTC at 510/817-5848, Attn: Public Information.
The Final Transportation 2035 Plan, and companion Final Environmental Impact Report and Final Conformity Analysis, are slated for review and approval at the April 10, 2009 Planning Committee and April 22, 2009 Commission meetings.
