DRCOG is exploring participation in a cohort group sponsored by the Urban Sustainability Accelerator Program at Portland State University in Oregon. The program involves a 13-month priority-setting partnership led by director Robert Liberty, a university research team and policy, planning and transportation experts. If selected to participate, DRCOG could explore an improved process for prioritizing allocation of transportation funding. The cohort would likely include two other urban areas examining their decision-making process and priorities for transportation investments.
Because participation would require time and financial investments by DRCOG, your input is critical in determining whether we pursue this opportunity. Please attend this fact-finding session to learn more about the program and how it might inform DRCOG's transportation investment decisions.
