Community Workshops on Future of Transportation in San Jose and Bay Area



Apr 26, 2001, 01:00 ET from Metropolitan Transportation Commission

    OAKLAND, Calif., April 26 /PRNewswire/ -- The future of transportation in
 San Jose and the Bay Area will be discussed at two community workshops in
 San Jose:
 
     -- Wednesday, May 2, 6:30 - 8:30 p.m., Foothill Intermediate School
        Auditorium, 1966 Flint Ave., East San Jose
     -- Thursday, May 10, 6:30 - 8:30 p.m., Luther Burbank School Cafeteria,
        4 Wabash Ave. (off West San Carlos Street) in San Jose.
 
     The workshops will focus on the 2001 Regional Transportation Plan (RTP),
 which will identify how billions of federal, state and regional tax dollars
 should be spent over the next 25 years to manage, maintain and improve the
 Bay Area transportation network.
     The interactive workshops, featuring graphic displays on transportation
 issues, will invite participants to express their views on topics such as
 traffic congestion and how transportation affects the economy, the environment
 and social equity.  A discussion will follow on the tough choices and
 tradeoffs the region must make in deciding how to invest transportation
 dollars.
     The Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) is cosponsoring the
 workshops with the San Jose/Santa Clara County Chapter of the League of Women
 Voters on May 2 and with the United Neighborhoods Association of Santa Clara
 County on May 10.
     "I hope as many San Jose residents as possible attend these meetings and
 voice their ideas and concerns about our transportation issues," said
 Santa Clara County Supervisor and MTC Commissioner Jim Beall.
     For more information about the workshops or the Regional Transportation
 Plan, call MTC at 510-464-7787 or email:  info@mtc.ca.gov.  Can't make the

 the nine-county San Francisco Bay Area.
