Redwood City to Host County Transportation Authority Workshop on "Our Transportation Future"

Redwood City, CA - January 15, 2003 - On Saturday, January 24, 2004 the San Mateo County Transportation Authority will hold a community workshop in Redwood City to gather public input on which projects should be included in the reauthorization of the county's Measure A. The Transportation Authority administers the proceeds of Measure A’s ½ cent sales tax for the county's transportation needs.

This workshop presents an opportunity for members of the community to let the Transportation Authority know their preferences for investing in San Mateo County’s transportation future – more public transportation better roads, improved interchanges, shuttle programs, or non-motorized forms of transportation. The workshop takes place from 10 am until noon in the Council Chambers in City Hall, 1017 Middlefield Road, in Redwood City.

“Transportation and traffic are among the most critical issues facing our community today,” said Redwood City Council member Ira Ruskin, the south county cities’ representative on the Transportation Authority Board of Directors. “The prosperity and health of our County depends in large part on the quality of our transportation and transit systems, today and in the future. This is the time for the community to influence what kinds of projects might be part of the expenditure plan that will be included in the Measure A renewal ballot measure. I urge all interested community members to attend and tell the Authority what you want to invest in for the transportation future in San Mateo County.”

Measure A was approved by voters in June 1988, and expires in 2008. It included a specific expenditure plan with a broad spectrum of projects and programs, including Caltrain upgrades and improvements, highway and street projects, 20% allocation for local streets and roads and paratransit service for people with disabilities.
