Join Santa Clarita Transit for a series of free community workshops where residents are invited to voice their opinion and help shape the future direction of public transit services in the Santa Clarita Valley. The first of three community workshops will be held on Thursday, Aug. 30, at 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. at the Santa Clarita Activities Center, located at 20880 Centre Pointe Parkway.
These initial meetings will be followed by two additional rounds of public forums in 2012 focusing on specific steps that Santa Clarita Transit should take in order to provide the best public transit system.
“These meetings are part of a comprehensive outreach effort launched earlier this year, which included community, bus rider and Dial-A-Ride surveys,” said Mayor Frank Ferry. “All of the input collected during this process will be taken into consideration as the City continues its efforts to develop a public transit system that will benefit the entire community.”
The community workshops will help the City to update its Transit Development Plan (TPD) for Santa Clarita Transit. The existing plan was established in 2006 and due to various economic changes, no longer accurately depicts the area’s needs and future growth and development of the City. Updating the Transit Development Plan will not only provide for appropriate representation, but will forecast future demand for transit services in the Santa Clarita Valley based on current and anticipated demographic, development and economic growth.
