The Mendocino Council of Governments (MCOG) is undertaking a study of transportation needs and solutions for the communities of Covelo, Laytonville, Brooktrails, Potter Valley and Hopland – five inland rural communities with no public transit services.

According to MCOG, the project will focus on working closely with community residents and stakeholders to identify transportation needs and explore innovative mobility solutions that can connect residents with the places they need to go.

An initial round of community outreach is scheduled for the week of August 22-26.  The project team will be holding listening sessions in each of the five communities.  Residents are invited to attend the sessions to talk with the planning team about their own mobility needs or those of their families, employees or neighbors.  Please drop in anytime during the meeting to tell us your story.

Anyone who is unable to attend a listening session can visit the project website to submit a description of their transportation challenges or to use an interactive map to indicate the destinations they have trouble getting to.  The public engagement website is at bit.ly/MCOGMobility.

For further information, contact project manager Loretta Ellard at lellard@dbcteam.net or 707-234-3434.


MCOG lanza un estudio de soluciones de movilidad para Covelo, Laytonville, Brooktrails, Potter Valley y Hopland

El Consejo de Gobiernos de Mendocino (MCOG) está realizando un estudio de las necesidades y soluciones de transporte para las comunidades de Covelo, Laytonville, Brooktrails, Potter Valley y Hopland – cinco comunidades rurales del interior sin servicios de transporte público.

Según MCOG, el proyecto se centrará en trabajar de cerca con los residentes de la comunidad y las partes interesadas para identificar las necesidades de transporte y explorar soluciones de movilidad innovadoras que puedan conectar a los residentes con los lugares a los que necesitan ir.

Una ronda inicial de alcance comunitario está programada para la semana del 22 al 26 de agosto. El equipo del proyecto llevará a cabo sesiones de escucha en cada una de las cinco comunidades. Se invita a los residentes a asistir a las sesiones para hablar con el equipo de planificación sobre sus propias necesidades de movilidad o las de sus familias, empleados o vecinos. Visítenos en cualquier momento durante la reunión para contarnos su historia.

Cualquier persona que no pueda asistir a una sesión de escucha puede visitar el sitio web del proyecto para enviar una descripción de sus desafíos de transporte o para usar un mapa interactivo para indicar los destinos a los que tiene problemas para llegar.  El sitio web de participación pública está en bit.ly/MCOGMobility.

Para obtener más información, póngase en contacto con la directora del proyecto Loretta Ellard lellard@dbcteam.net o 707-234-3434.

  1. Mendocino Transit Authority would be a good resource for this, they could always use the extra ridership.
