Register for this FREE event at http://NOACAVision.eventbrite.com/

Join a panel of experts who will weigh in on the 20 year vision of the region’s transportation system. Be sure to bring your thinking cap, because you and other attendees will take part in a series of short discussions about these issues and your comments will be documented by notetakers for inclusion in the 20 year plan.

Over the next 20 years NOACA will have approximately $13 billion available to be invested in the Northeast Ohio region’s transportation system. During that period of time, many economic, social and technological changes will take place. In 20 years, Northeast Ohio will likely not be the same as it is today.

So, what should the priorities be for those limited funds? Should the preferences of Millennials outweigh those of Baby Boomers? Is economic growth an important consideration? What about social equity? And, does anything new need to be built or should there be an emphasis on maintaining and repairing what’s already there?

Join the discussion at The Idea Center on Tuesday, September 20th!
