The North Central Texas Council of Governments will host a hybrid public meeting this month to offer North Texans an update on Transportation Alternatives Program funding recommendations, a regional policy supporting context-sensitive design and other topics.

The meeting will take place at NCTCOG’s Arlington offices, 616 Six Flags Drive, at noon Monday, Nov. 7. Residents may attend the meeting, watch it online at www.publicinput.com/nctcogNov22 or participate via phone by dialing 855-925-2801, then code 2233.

Staff will provide an overview of the recommended funding awards for the Transportation Alternatives Program Call for Projects. Projects eligible under this program include the construction of on- and off-road pedestrian and bicycle facilities, rail station connections, activities related to the Safe Routes to School initiative and safety improvements.

NCTCOG is also proposing a draft policy resolution supporting a regional model for complete streets and context-sensitive design. This resolution outlines the importance of planning and constructing complete streets and serves as the framework for encouraging such policies across the region. The draft policy will be presented for review and comment.

Additionally, staff will provide a recap of promotional efforts and the results of the events held at schools that celebrated Walk to School Day on Oct.12.

Finally, staff will present an update on current air quality standings, compare current standings with previous ozone seasons and highlight potential implications facing the region for not meeting federal attainment requirements for ozone.

A recording of the presentations will also be posted at www.publicinput.com/nctcogNov22.
