Transportation Board asks for “an earful” for their upcoming Public Hearings

State Transportation Board Schedules Six Public Hearings

Vermont statute Title 19 V.S.A. § 5(d)(8) charges the state’s Transportation Board to collect public comments via hearings “for the purpose of obtaining public comment on the development of state transportation policy, the mission of the Agency, and state transportation planning, capital programming and program implementation.”

These comments are summarized in a report prepared for the Vermont State Legislature and the Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans). This fall, the T-Board has identified “six hot topics” that it will highlight and ask the public to address. These include;

  • Transportation Revenues
  • Bike & Pedestrian Issues
  • The Future of Passenger Railroad & Inter-City Bus Services
  • Climate Change – Resilience & Adaptation of the Transportation Network
  • VTrans’ Accelerated Bridge Program
  • Roadway Safety

The Chair of the T-Board, Moe Germain, is quoted in the announcement as saying “…we also want people to provide us an earful regarding whatever topic is most important to them.”

This is an opportunity to remind legislators and VTrans managers of your and your community’s concerns regarding improvements to our transportation system.
