VTA Solicits Public Comments

Submitted By Brandi Childress

As the Congestion Management Agency for Santa Clara County, the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA) is responsible for preparing and adopting the county-wide transportation plan: Valley Transportation Plan (VTP). The VTP outlines transportation programs and investments for Santa Clara County over a 25-year period. The VTP is updated every four years, aligning with updates to the Regional Transportation Plan prepared by the Metropolitan Transportation Commission. The last update, VTP 2035, was adopted by the VTA Board in January 2009.

The public is invited to review an updated list of transportation proposals and provide comments. These proposals will then be contained in the VTP 2040 document that will be adopted in January 2013. These public meetings will provide an opportunity for the general public to provide input and feedback to help shape the preparation of the VTP, and learn more about Santa Clara County's transportation needs and planning process.

These meetings are a follow up from meetings held in April 2011.
