An initiative of Vice-Mayor Tony Lama and Councilman Nelson Rodriguez, the Transportation Summit was held in order to bring together the relevant stakeholders and experts of all agencies responsible for transportation to focus intensely on specific problems, while ensuring that all agencies’ actions are strategically coordinated to achieve optimal solutions.
Based on the ideas generated at the summit, a list of strategies recommended for the Town to pursue was incorporated into the Town’s Strategic Plan, and Town staff was authorized, to pursue the presented ideas with responsible outside agencies, as well as seek grant opportunities and legislative appropriations to implement these strategies.
