Join Us for the 2019 RPC Legislative Forum: The Case for Public Transit (11/13 in Hampton)
Please join us for the 2019 Rockingham Planning Commission Legislative Forum. We sponsor this annual forum so municipal officials and Rockingham Planning Commission (RPC) commissioners can meet informally with our legislative delegation to discuss issues important to the communities. The 2019 Forum (agenda) will be held on November 13, 2019 and focused on “The Case for Public Transit.”
RPC has assembled a panel of experts to discuss community and regional transit needs. Taylor Klocke, Communications and Legislative Specialist with the Community Transportation Association of America (CTAA), will lead off with a national perspective on the outlook for federal Transportation Reauthorization legislation and CTAA’s recommendations for changes to help rural and small urban areas address growing transit needs. She will also offer insights on how other small states are addressing growing senior transportation needs. Scott Bogle, Senior Transportation Planner, will follow, summarizing the statewide transit needs assessment RPC is completing with New Hampshire’s transit providers. Rad Nichols, Executive Director of COAST, will bring the discussion to the local level with a summary of their new route system, retooled to address rider and municipal needs identified through a year-long Comprehensive Operations Analysis. He’ll also speak to the ballooning demand for paratransit services mandated under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and COAST’s financial future.
