Transportation Focus Group Needed

As a part of the Gainesville Transportation Study, the Gainesville-Hall Metropolitan Planning Organization and the City of Gainesville are recruiting Gainesville citizens and/or Gainesville business owners to serve on a Transportation Focus Group. Those selected will take part in a series of four meetings/work sessions to develop ideas for the betterment of transportation in the City. The ideas will be shared with Transportation Policy members for possible inclusion in the City’s ongoing Transportation Study.
 
The Transportation Focus Group will be a 10 person panel with 2 members chosen from each city council ward. This will provide a group of citizen and business owners that remains consistent throughout the study to provide important input and comment on study findings and recommendations.  Participants should be willing to participate in the four meetings and be ready to share ideas with a group of diverse interests. The tentative dates for those meetings are:
 
February 28, 2013
March 21, 2013
May 2, 2013
June 20, 2013
 
The meetings will be held from 2:00PM-4:00PM at Fair Street Neighborhood Center, 715 Fair Street, Gainesville, GA 30501.  To be considered for membership, applicants must either be a resident or business owner in the City of Gainesville. Please complete the attached application for consideration and return by February 18, 2013.
