About This LUNCH & LEARN
This UNPRECEDENTED and needed discussion covers do's and don'ts as well as Why?
We will visit the rules and regulations of the
FAST - FIXING AMERICA'S STRUCTURE TRANSPORTATION Act.
We have asked three (3) industry experts and our Chief Visionary Officer to provide the People with firsthand information about not only what is available for grant funding but what role does the taxpayer, End-user, the Ridership and census tract businesses play in the creation and successful implementation of the PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION Infrastructure when the localities apply for the federal funding, i.e., Small Starts, TIGER, CMAQ, etc.
Mary Glass, Moderator, and convener will provide background for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion theme to lay the foundation of the discussion.
CAROLYN FLOWERS - Deputy Administrator, Federal Transit Administrator
We are pleased to hear from Deputy Flowers office that she and Secretary Anthony Fox, US DOT, are pursuing avenues that connect the People with Mobility on Demand while addressing "Ladders of Opportunity" with Equity and Inclusion at the heart of the formula.
We will examine data set for the legitimacy of the "Core Constituents" and best use of funds.
We will speak to the exposure of the citizenry and their "fingerprint" in the East/West BRT.
We will share who is and is not around the table for decision-making.
But most all, we will offer our thoughts of what is necessary going forward as it relates to Enduring Concentrated Poverty, Safety and Safe Neighborhoods, connectivity of para transit, care maintenance of buses, the efficiency of service of MCTS, and the implementation of a North/South BRT as the FIRST BRT/Bus Rapid Transit Alternative.
We see where funding has been allocated without the expressed desire and agreement of the People, the Electorate in Milwaukee. This a pathway that is unacceptable with the givens. Milwaukee Public Policy Review has spoken out and continue to sound the bell for All Hands on Deck.
We see a very fast-paced East/West BRT Feasibility Study application about to be sent off for funding FOR $42-$48 million dollars that was given a "THUMBS DOWN" by the citizenry.
Further, we are specifically looking at Milwaukee Streetcar, Bublr Bike Ride Share, and the East/West BRT/Bus Rapid Transit.
Who should attend: residential-commercial-community organizations-light industrial citizenry, bus and paratransit system employees and managers, board members, contractors, suppliers, manufacturers, government representatives of all levels, lobbyists, public and private venues of education, and consultants.
