Transportation Town Hall Meeting & Panel Discussion at CNU Today

According to a press release from the Daily Press:

The Daily Press and the Wason Center for Public Policy at Christopher Newport University are hosting a “Transportation Town Hall” meeting and panel discussion from 7 to 8:30 p.m. on Monday, March 4. Five panelists with extensive knowledge and experience on the issues will be the featured speakers:

  • Hampton Mayor Molly Ward, chair of the Hampton Roads Transportation Planning Organization
  • Portsmouth Mayor Kenneth Wright
  • Camelia Ravanbahkt, deputy executor director of the Hampton Roads Transportation Planning Organization
  • Alan Witt, CPA, former member of the Commonwealth Transportation Board
  • Aubrey Lane, Hampton Roads representative on the Commonwealth Transportation Board

In addition to offering their remarks, panelists will field questions about transportation-related issues. The panel format will provide frank discussion of the most important topics — outside of the political theater and party-related wrangling of the General Assembly.  Topics will include the following:

  • The state of transportation in the Commonwealth
  • Aging infrastructure, deferred maintenance and the cost of new construction
  • Fiscal constraints and the funding dilemma
  • Regional project priorities
  • Short-term solutions and congestion pricing
  • The relationship of the Public-Private Transportation Act, the Virginia Department of Transportation and the HRTPO

Questions may be submitted in advance to Rebecca Troyer, rtroyer@dailypress.com. Questions to be submitted to panelists will be selected by the Daily Press.
