To The Editor:
This letter is addressed to Dear Valley Residents:
Much has been said lately about the need for better -- or any -- transit service here in the Mad River Valley. We have an opportunity to take that conversation to the next level.
The Vermont Agency of Transportation (or VTrans) is currently accepting comments on its transportation plan for Central Vermont, including the Mad River Valley. The results of the public comment period will directly affect the services that CCTA/GMTA is able to plan for and provide to Valley residents. This plan can be viewed online at www.centralvtplanning.com/Draft08_CVRTP.pdf.
I urge everyone to make their voice heard! It's important that if we want any improved or expanded service here in The Valley -- including van pools, carpools, year-round commuter service, and service for the elderly and disabled -- that as many of us are heard from as possible. Submit your comments online at www.milligancpa.com/VT_Transportation_Plan.html.
Written comments can be sent to Steve Gladczuk at the Central Vermont Regional Planning Commission, 29 Main Street, Suite 4, Montpelier, VT 05602. Comments should be submitted by September 1.
