Addison County Transit Resources Committee Meeting

An invitation to a local event for people interested in alternative energy and public transportation. It's coming up on July 21:
Welcome to the Short Range Public Transportation Plan Stakeholder Committee. We are delighted you have made this commitment to assist Milligan & Company LLC with the input and insight needed to prepare a successful Short Range Public Transportation Plan for Addison County
Transit Resources.

Your role in the study Milligan & Company will conduct over the next nine months is an essential component. The first of two stakeholder meetings is scheduled for July 21st, 2008. The purpose is to review data Milligan collected to prepare a profile of Vermont's public transit systems, and to assess unmet needs for transit service in the state. As a stakeholder, we will ask you to provide input on the
completeness and accuracy of the profile, and to share suggestions on services that should be added over the next five years. At the second meeting, planned for September 2008, the Milligan & Company team will present recommended service and/or organization alternatives that result from the data collection and public involvement processes.

As you can see, there is much to cover in our two stakeholder sessions. The result of this work will be to present the Vermont Agency of Transportation and its public transit providers with a five-year roadmap for enhancing and improving the state's public transportation network and services. For more information on the project, please visit the Vermont Agency of Transportation Transit website at
and click on Short Range Public Transportation Plan.

On behalf of the Milligan & Company team, I look forward to meeting and working with you at the first Stakeholder Committee Meeting planned for 1 p.m. on Monday July 21st, 2008 in ACTR, First Floor Conference Room, 282 Boardman Street, Middlebury.

Please let us know if you cannot attend by Friday, July 11th 2008.
