Joint KMPO/SRTC Board Meeting

For those of you who can't get enough of our KMPO Board meetings, you get a bonus this month. KMPO and Spokane Regional Transportation Council (SRTC), the Metropolitan Planning Organization for Spokane County, WA, have called a special joint Board Meeting for Thursday, March 31 from 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. at Garden Plaza, 545 N. Garden Plaza in Post Falls.

The KMPO Board contracts with SRTC for day-to-day administrative and planning duties.

We're getting the two boards together because 2010 Census results show population increases in both Kootenai and Spokane counties. That could mean some implications for each area, although we're not sure what kind yet.

Representatives from the Federal Highways Administration, Federal Transit Administration, and the U.S. Census Bureau will make presentations and answer questions from the Boards at the meeting, related to affects the 2010 Census may have on the two counties. Members of the public are welcome to attend, as always, so come check it out. A meeting agenda will be posted here soon.
