Residents interested in improved, coordinated specialized transportation services for older adults and those with disabilities or low incomes have until Aug.14 to make their opinions heard.
The Pikes Peak Area Council of Governments is seeking comment about a proposed amendment to its coordination plan. The multi-jurisdictional organization, which includes 15 municipal and county governments, also has requested input about the funding requests it has received for transportation programs.
The documents are available at www.ppacg.org.
Comments can be made in the following ways:
* By mail, to Lisa Thomas at 15 South 7th Street, Colorado Springs, CO 80905
* By e-mail, to firstname.lastname@example.org
* By phone, to (719) 471-7080 ext. 114
* In person, at 14 S. Chestnut Street during the Mobility Coordination Open House ( 4 to 6 p.m., Aug.14) or the Board of Directors meeting (9 a.m., Aug. 12).
The goal of the transportation plan is to provide mobility to individuals with special needs, allowing them to live independently and to participate in community life.
