CAMPO takes public meetings online
Friday, April 3, 2020 by Ryan Thornton
The Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization is taking its meetings online and over the phone for the month of April. This will impact the Monday, April 6, meeting of the Transportation Policy Board as well as a number of open house meetings. Monday’s board meeting will include a public hearing on the 2045 Regional Transportation Plan, the 2021-2024 Transportation Improvement Program and amendments to the existing Transportation Improvement Program, all of which could be impacted by the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. All of the events will be hosted online via WebEx or by phone. Those who would like to speak during Monday’s public hearing can call (512) 215-8225 or email their comments to firstname.lastname@example.org by 10 a.m. on April 6. Monday’s meeting will begin earlier than usual at 2 p.m. CAMPO is holding a series of four consecutive online open house meetings April 13-16 to offer the public a chance to comment on the 2045 Regional Transportation Plan after 16 open houses were canceled. Visit CAMPO’s website for online and phone access information for each meeting. The public is also invited to study specifics of the Regional Transportation Plan and respond to a survey on the website through April 13. As we previously reported, Travis County considers this online engagement effort seriously flawed due in part to the current strain on government resources. The Commissioners Court will be considering a request next week to ask for a restart to the Regional Transportation Plan public engagement process once the online materials are revised and completed.
