This coming Monday night, April 9, there will be an opportunity to provide public comment to the Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (CAMPO) on awarding over $400 million in transportation projects over the next four years, and we are asking for you to please consider coming to the meeting and voicing your support for funding for the Commute Solutions program.
