PDC Cosponsors Meeting for County-Wide Dialogue on Transportation Funding

Fairfax County transportation needs over the next ten years exceed available funding from local, regional, state, federal and private sources. This gap is estimated to be around $300 million per year. The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors recognizes that improving transportation is a high priority since the county’s economic health depends on an efficient transportation system.

The Board of Supervisors is seeking community feedback on ways to generate revenue to address these unfunded transportation (roadway, transit, bike and pedestrian) needs. This effort will consist of a series of community meetings in September and October 2012 at which potential revenue sources will be discussed.

The public will have the opportunity to provide feedback at the meetings or in an online survey through October 12, 2012. The public meetings will include a presentation, a question-and-answer session, and an opportunity to view materials and talk to county staff.

The meeting in Providence, co-sponsored by PDC and Providence Supervisor Linda Smyth, will take place on:
