If you would like to see your elected officials in action, as they discuss key transportation policy issues affecting the future of Santa Cruz County, then make a note in your calendar that tomorrow is the regular monthly meeting of the Santa Cruz County Regional Transportation Commission. The Commission will meet on the Fifth Floor of the County Government Center, located at 701 Ocean Street in Santa Cruz, beginning at 9:00 a.m. There is a link to the Commission’s agenda in today’s blog transcript. You can almost always find more information on any topic featured on the Land Use Report by checking out the transcript of that day’s Report at kusp.org/landuse.
Tomorrow’s meeting agenda doesn’t feature lots of “high-profile” items. However, if you are interested in seeing how this very important agency works, checking out a “normal” meeting is probably the very best way to get an accurate idea of how the Commission operates. Tomorrow, the Commission is getting an update on construction projects underway, including the Highway One widening project, and will discuss possible amendments to the overall budget and work program. The Commission is anticipating that the Santa Cruz Branch Line railroad will soon officially be in public ownership, so there is an agenda item on a “celebration train,” to commemorate the acquisition.
Check out these, and other items, that will be heard tomorrow at the Transportation Commission meeting.
