Recently appointed New York City Department of Transportation Commissioner Polly Trottenberg will deliver the keynote speech at the New York Metropolitan Transportation Council’s Annual Meeting on February 27. The meeting will be held from 12:30 – 2:30 p.m. at the U.S. Custom House, One Bowling Green, in lower Manhattan.
At the meeting, NYMTC’s members will also take action to adopt the $24 million federally required Unified Planning Work Program, as well as welcome several new members – including Commissioner Trottenberg – and elect Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone as the new co-chair. This year’s Annual Meeting theme, Expanding Horizons: Planning Partnerships in the NY-NJ-CT Region, looks at the historical nature of these partnerships, the increasing need to work together and the future of planning partnerships within the tri-state area, and beyond.
The draft SFY 2014-15 Unified Planning Work Program is available at www.nymtc.org. The UPWP defines the region’s planning priorities and describes all transportation-related planning activities anticipated within a given program year.
