SRTC Board Meeting February 11

The February SRTC Board meeting is next Thursday, February 11 at 1 p.m. here at SRTC. The agenda is here.

I would say the major item on it is the FTA/FHA Federal Certification Review. We go through these reviews every four years to make sure we are in compliance with state and federal regulations and that we're doing the duties required of a Metropolitan Planning Organization and Regional Planning Organization (SRTC is an MPO at the federal level and RTPO at the state level).

Four years ago when we went through this process, we didn't do so hot. We had 12 "corrective actions." The results from our 2015 review? Not a single corrective action. Some representatives from the Federal Transit Administration and the Federal Highways Administration will be at the Board meeting to discuss the review so feel free to attend if interested. SRTC Board meetings are always open to members of the public.
