Lee County Launches a Transit Task Force
The Board of County Commissioners directed county administration in September 2010 to create a work plan that provides funding options for LeeTran. A Transit Task Force has been formed to serve for one year and advise the Commission on funding options and transit issues. The task force will assist in developing a transit system vision and development plan through 2035.
The task force is composed of 18 members of the community representing large employers, health care, social services, higher education, and transportation and planning professionals. Dan Moser is BikeWalkLee's representative on the task force.
Meetings are open to the public. The next meeting is scheduled for Friday, March 11 at 8 a.m. at the offices of the Lee County Metropolitan Planning Organization, 1926 Victoria Ave., Fort Myers. Background documents, minutes and other related materials can be found on the website.
