Contact County Board in Support of RTA
- Greetings:The county board will vote on a resolution Thursday (8/16) supporting formation of a Regional Transit Authority in Dane County. I encourage you to contact your board representative (or even contact the whole board by sending an email to: county_board_recipients@... ) expressing your support for an RTA.What does the RTA have to do with water quality? An RTA will encourage better transportation planning, more compact growth, less impervious surface area and, finally, reduced stormwater runoff to our beleaguered waters.Passage of the resolution is likely but emails in support still are extremely valuable. Also, come to the county board meeting and register and/or speak in favor of the resolution Thursday at 7PM, room 201 City-County Bldg. Just registering is valuable if you don't want to speak. Thanks for your help.Scott TaylorFriends of Starkweather Creek
