The Mendocino Council of Governments (MCOG) is nearing completion of a study of transportation needs and solutions for the communities of Covelo, Laytonville, Brooktrails, Potter Valley and Hopland – five inland rural communities with no “regular” public transit services.  On June 27th at 5 PM, a virtual public meeting will provide residents with an opportunity to preview and comment on the study recommendations which will be made to the MCOG and MTA boards in August.

According to MCOG staff, “The study points to a variety of innovative, low costs programs for providing life-line transportation services in currently unserved communities and suggests ways of funding these services. However, if these programs are to be implemented, it will require the engagement and advocacy of local residents and stakeholders.  We encourage people to come and add their voice to the action plan for this project.”

A link to the virtual public meeting can be found on the project website at bit.ly/MCOGMobility.

El Consejo de Gobiernos de Mendocino (MCOG) está a punto de completar un estudio sobre las necesidades y soluciones de transporte para las comunidades de Covelo, Laytonville, Brooktrails, Potter Valley y Hopland, cinco comunidades rurales del interior que no cuentan con servicios de transporte público “regulares”. El 27 de junio a las 5 PM, una reunión pública virtual brindará a los residentes la oportunidad de previsualizar y comentar sobre las recomendaciones del estudio, que se presentarán a las juntas del MCOG y la MTA en agosto.

Según el personal del MCOG, “El estudio señala una variedad de programas innovadores y de bajo costo para proporcionar servicios de transporte vitales en comunidades actualmente no atendidas y sugiere formas de financiar estos servicios. Sin embargo, si estos programas se van a implementar, requerirá la participación y defensa de los residentes locales y las partes interesadas. Alentamos a las personas a venir y agregar su voz al plan de acción para este proyecto”.

Se puede encontrar un enlace a la reunión pública virtual en el sitio web del proyecto en bit.ly/MCOGMobility.
