THE RPC HAS HEARD FROM YOU!
RPC is in the midst of a public outreach effort aimed at engaging citizens on transportation priorities and challenges. Several community meetings have been held around the region, including New Orleans East, Kenner and on the West Bank of Jefferson Parish. Additionally, a survey has been disseminated to identify the public's transportation needs and ideas. The survey period is closed and RPC is compiling the results. Upon completion (Sept. 2014), a report will be available online and in print. Please check back here for a report on the results of your feedback.
If you would like to know more about this outreach effort, please call Nik Richard at 504-483-8535 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org
