One week left for the BePartofthePlan discussions

One week left for the BePartofthePlan discussions

Just wanted to send out another reminder to join in our BePartofthePlan discussions and give us your thoughts on the region’s transportation future.

The consultation period closes on June 30, so you have one more week to send in your feedback as of today.

There’s a few key ways to talk to us:

  • First, play It’s Your Move online, which is our consultation exercise/game. Pick transport priorities for the region, choose your preferred existing funding options, and rank the future funding options we should pursue.
  • You can also visit our consultation discussion boards. Answer the “sticky” questions I’ve posted in each forum, and feel free to post your own discussion topics too.
  • Or come to one of our in-person consultation forums this week. Our CEO Tom Prendergast will be at all three of the events, so you can talk to him about your questions and concerns. Plus you’ll get to play the “It’s Your Move” game in small groups. Here are the dates and locations of the forums:
      Monday, June 22, 2009
      6:30PM – 9:00PM
      Evergreen Cultural Centre
      1205 Pinetree Way
      Coquitlam, BC

      Tuesday, June 23, 2009
      6:30PM – 9:00PM
      ACT Centre
      11944 Haney Place
      Maple Ridge, BC

      Wednesday, June 24, 2009
      6:30PM – 9:00PM
      Richmond Cultural Centre
      180-7700 Minoru Gate
      Richmond, BC

Again, check out our BePartofthePlan consultation website for more on the in-person events, including maps and tentative schedules for each meeting.

(If you can’t make it, you might follow Ken Hardie’s Twitter — he’s going to the events and tweeting about what’s going on there.)

After the consultation period is over, your thoughts are collected and reflected in our plans, which are then presented for approval to our Board by August 1, as well as the Regional Transportation Commissioner and the Mayors’ Council.

And finally, if you’re curious, here are the Buzzer blog’s past posts discussing the 10-Year Plan.
