To express these goals, the county is required to publish a locally-developed Coordinated Public Transit-Human Services Transportation Plan.

A meeting will be held to conduct an assessment of public transit-human services transportation coordination and to review a list of programmed transportation projects. The meeting will be facilitated by Brown County Planning Commission staff and will be held on:

Tuesday, October 19, 2021
