Below is an invitation from the Bureau of Transportation to join an important conversation on the future of transportation maintenance in our city.
  • Are there ways to use revenues more effectively?
  • What parts of the transportation system should have highest claim on limited revenues?
  • What parts of the transportation system need shoring up, here in Southeast and in other parts of the city?
  • Are additional revenues needed? If yes, where should they come from?
  • What system of oversight exists OR might be needed for maintenance expenditures?
