GOV. RITTER'S TRANSPORTATION PANEL MEETS THURSDAY
Gov. Bill Ritter's Blue Ribbon Transportation Finance and Implementation Panel meets tomorrow (Thursday, Nov. 15) from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Oxford Hotel in Denver, 1600 17th St. This will be the panel's final meeting prior to submitting a report to Gov. Ritter next month.
Gov. Ritter convened the 30-member Transportation Finance and Implementation Panel earlier this year to explore the state's transportation funding challenges. The state's primary revenue sources are declining while demand and the costs of construction and maintenance are rising.
The panel's work commenced in April with a statewide transportation summit. Since then, the panel has met 12 times in communities aroundColorado. The panel's technical advisory committee also has met more than a dozen times since April.
