Notice: Critically Important Wasatch Front Regional Council Open Houses Coming Up

Don't neglect to throw in your own 2¢

Thanks to tip from yet another sharp-eyed and alert Weber County Forum reader, we'll fulfill one of our primary functions as Weber County's most prominent community blog, and alert you to an important series of upcoming public meetings which will be conducted by the Wasatch Front Regional Council, concerning broad transportation planning issues which will have broad repercussions for all Wasatch Front residents for the next thirty years.  Rather than reel off slice, dice and ginsu-knife the myriad of issues which will be discussed at these public meetings, we'll simply incorporate the full body of the flier which we received by email this morning.  Here goes: 


What YOU Think Matters!

Come and let your voice be heard at three open houses sponsored by the  to display and receive comment on:

1. The Draft 2014-2019 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP)

3. Four Growth and Transportation Scenarios proposed in preparation for the update to the RTP due in 2015
4. The Draft Wasatch Mobility Plan for the transportation disadvantaged

The corresponding air quality conformity analyses (Air Quality Memoranda 29 and 29a) will also be available for the RTP amendments and the Draft TIP.
These plans, programs, and projects are subject to public review and comment prior to consideration and possible adoption by the Regional Council.

Interesting that all these public meetings are scheduled during working hours, when most people.... are... at.... work.

Either they don't want to hear from the productive class, or the bureaucrats who are hosting these meeting are doing these meetings because they have to, aren't really interested in what anybody thinks, and therefore don't want to waste their own off-hours time on them.
