Learn about transportation in the North Texas region and help set future priorities during a public meeting at 6 p.m. June 10 at the North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG), 616 Six Flags Drive in Arlington.
The Regional Transportation Council and North Central Texas Council of Governments, together serving as the metropolitan planning organization for the Dallas-Fort Worth area since 1974, are seeking public input. These are the scheduled presentations:
- 2020-2022 Disadvantaged Business Enterprise goals. As a recipient of federal transportation funds, NCTCOG is required to establish and periodically update Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) participation goals to encourage contracting opportunities for minority and historically underutilized businesses. The draft update of the DBE participation goals will be presented for review and comment.
- Regional Pedestrian Safety Action Plan. The North Texas Pedestrian Safety Action Plan will develop goals and action items to address the high number of pedestrian crashes and fatalities across the region. With the guidance of a diverse stakeholder committee, the plan will include analysis of reported crash data, a public opinion survey, goals and strategies to improve pedestrian safety and prioritized areas of the region to implement safety countermeasures. An overview of the plan will be presented.
