River to Sea TPO ***ALL COMMENTS MADE ON THIS PAGE ARE SUBJECT TO CHAPTER 119 FLORIDA STATUTES - THE FLORIDA SUNSHINE LAW*** The River to Sea TPO (hereafter referred to as the TPO) is created under the provisions of 23 U.S.C.
(1)

Section 134 and designated by the Governor of Florida, under Section 339.175 of the Florida Statutes, to develop transportation plans and programs for the designated Metropolitan Planning Area (MPA). The current MPA includes includes Volusia County and portions of Flagler County inclusive of the cities of Flagler Beach, Beverly Beach, and portions of Palm Coast and Bunnell. The membership of the TPO, as outlined in Section 339.175 F.S., is determined by agreement between the Governor and the units of general purpose local governments within the MPA. Membership is intended to ensure equitable representation of the populations served by the organization as well as input by major transportation service providers such as airports and mass transit. Various agencies are also represented including the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT). Members of the TPO operate through the establishment of interlocal agreements. The River to Sea TPO is comprised of a policy-setting board, a Technical Coordinating Committee (TCC), a Citizens Advisory Committee (CAC), a Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee (BPAC) and a Transportation Disadvantaged Local Coordinating Board (TDLCB). Participation on these committees is generally voluntary. The TPO is supported by a small staff of planning professionals led by an Executive Director. The TPO Board meets on the 4th Wednesday of every month and all meetings are properly noticed and open to the public. Board meetings are held at the River to Sea TPO office and begin promptly at 9:00 AM. In accordance with the adopted Bylaws of the TPO, each meeting agenda includes an opportunity for “citizens to comment or be heard on any matter pertinent to the urban transportation planning process.” This provides time for citizens to address the Board regarding a broad range of transportation related topics.

Mission: Increase local governments' input regarding where and how federal and state transportation dollars are spent.

A new Pedestrian Hybrid Beacon (PHB) traffic signal is in the process of being installed by the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) on International Speedway Boulevard (ISB) in front of Mainland High School. The installation of this signal comes after FDOT completed a pedestrian safety study of ISB between Clyde Morris Boulevard and White Street and found that this area was in need of pedestrian safety improvements. This type of signal has been successfully used across the U.S. to improve pedestrian safety. Take a few minutes to watch this short video to learn about how this signal works, and how motorists and pedestrian should travel through this area once the signal is installed so that everyone can arrive safely to their destination: https://bit.ly/3dMYyuH.

Connect 2045 Environmental Justice Workshop

The River to Sea TPO is currently developing Connect 2045, your community transportation plan. As part of the process, it is critical to understand and address the potential effects of planning and prioritization decisions on traditionally underserved members of the community, which often includes minority and low-income populations.

We are at a very important point in the plan development and the River to Sea TPO is seeking additional input regarding potential transportation needs, issues, and/or concerns of underserved populations. To do this, we’re hosting a workshop that will include a description of the planning process, efforts to consider potential adverse impacts to minority and low-income populations, an overview of the draft plan, and plenty of opportunity for questions and discussion.
If you are interested in attending the Connect 2045 Environmental Justice Webinar on Tuesday, August 4, 2020 at 10:00 a.m. register here: https://register.gotowebinar.com/register/9099270567528169743
