Want To Know What SRTC Did In 2014?

Many people are still not familiar with Metropolitan Planning Organizations like SRTC and often ask me what we do. When I explain that we distribute funds to local transportation programs and projects, work on coordination and collaboration between planning and transportation departments at our partner agencies and our the lead agency for transportation decisions in the area, the next question is usually "But what does SRTC actually do on a daily basis?" Well, a lot of stuff. Depends on the day. The best way to learn about all the projects and programs we worked on in 2014 is to read our 2014 Year in Review.  Don't worry, it's not long. And there are lots of graphics and photos.
