Funding Organization Seeks Input How Best Spend ‘Millions of Dollars’
MSRC, Southern California’s Mobile Source Air Pollution Reduction Review Committee, has slated six regional workshops in Los Angeles, Orange, San Bernardino and Riverside Counties “in order to get ideas and recommendations from stakeholders about how to allocate millions of dollars in Clean Transportation Funding.”
“These workshops are a great time to meet with the innovators who are working on clean transportation projects that improve our health and air quality on a day-to-day basis and hear what their real-world needs are,” MSRC chair Greg Pettis says in an agency announcement.
The Southern California MSRC workshops will be held on
- June 18, 1-3pm, hosted by the OCTA, the Orange County Transportation Authority, In Orange;
- June 24, 1-3pm, hosted by the City of Cathedral City;
- June 25, 10am-noon, hosted by RCTC, the Riverside County Transportation Commission, in Riverside;
- June 25, 2-4pm, hosted by the SANBAG, the San Bernardino Associated Governments in San Bernardino;
- July 1, 10am-noon, hosted by LA Metro, the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority in Los Angeles; and on
- July 2, 10am-noon at the Marvin Braude Constituent Service Center in Van Nuys.
“At our last series of workshops,” Pettis said, “we heard repeated requests for more funding for medium-duty vehicles and for bicycle related projects.
“As a result, we offered funding for these and other innovative projects.”
MSRC currently has four active solicitations with various proposal deadlines:
- Natural Gas Taxicab Program – Dealership Participation – due June 30;
