Notice of availability and public comment for amendment to 2022 coordinated public transit-human services transportion plan
December 29, 2022
The Cowlitz-Wahkiakum Council of Governments (CWCOG), as lead agency for the Southwest Washington Regional Transportation Planning Organization (SWRTPO), invites the public to comment on a proposed amendment to the 2022 Coordinated Public Transit-Human Services Transportation Plan (CPT-HSTP) to make minor corrections and add 2023-2025 biennium Consolidated Grant project rankings.
The primary purpose of the CPT-HSTP is to identify public transportation needs and develop strategies for improving transportation services for people with disabilities, seniors, young people, low-income individuals, and others dependent on accessible transportation services to get them to where they need to go. The CPT-HSTP will include a list of regionally ranked projects for the 2023-2025 biennium as a result of this proposed amendment. The CPT-HSTP covers public transportation services in Cowlitz, Grays Harbor, Lewis, Pacific, and Wahkiakum Counties. The SWRTPO Board is scheduled to consider this proposed amendment on January 18.
The CWCOG is a multi-purpose association of governments that administers a diverse array of federal, state and local programs.
The 2022 CPT-HSTP amended document with proposed changes will be available online at http://www.cwcog.org or by request at: CWCOG at Cowlitz County Administration Annex Bldg./ 207 4th Avenue N., Kelso, WA 98626 (360) 577-3041, beginning December 21, 2022.
