It's Official- SRTC Board Approves Horizon 2040 Plan

That sound you heard a little while ago was the sigh of relief staff let out when our Board approved our Horizon 2040 plan after almost two years of developing it.

This is a BIG day for us. Our Transportation Planner Ryan, the one with the crazy look in his eye to the left, put a lot of blood, sweat and tears into this plan. Actually that may have been my tears but I know Ryan invested a lot. And all he got was this lousy cake. And a lot of satisfaction.

So we celebrate tonight, Ryan takes an extended vacation, then we get back on the horse on January 1 putting the plan into action. So stay tuned, Horizon 2040 won't just go on a shelf now.
