The Tulare County Association of Governments (TCAG) will seek public input on transit systems and biking and walking paths in Tulare County at meetings set for March 21.

The first meeting will be held at 1 p.m. at the Visalia Convention Center, followed by another public meeting at 5:30 p.m. at the Porterville Sheltered Workshop.

The events include a public hearing on unmet transit needs, in which the public is encouraged to provide comments on local bus routes and schedules. Each comment received at the unmet needs hearing will be studied and changes will be implemented if the change meets the required “reasonable to meet” criteria.

Residents are invited to also participate in a workshop as part of the Active Transportation Plan. The plan is intended to recommend specific projects to make active transportation like walking or biking safer and more convenient. The workshop will include displays and the opportunity to talk with TCAG staff and the Active Transportation Plan consultant.

“The unmet needs public hearing is critically important to our transit planning work, and we value feedback from people who use transit in Tulare County — and those who would like to use transit,” said Ted Smalley, executive director of TCAG.

“The Active Transportation Plan is an important tool in helping Tulare County work toward meeting increased interest in healthier alternatives, such as walking and biking,” Smalley added. “Active transportation is a key part of our quality of life and health, so we need public input into how we plan to get there.”
