Transportation Authority Conducts Outreach for Strategic Plan 2020-2024

Transportation Authority Conducts Outreach for Strategic Plan 2020-2024

 

The San Mateo County Transportation Authority (TA) will be conducting outreach on the agency’s proposed 2020-2024 Strategic Plan. This plan will outline how the TA will make investment decisions over the next five years for the funds from Measures A and W that it is responsible for administering. This includes the process for how projects will be evaluated and prioritized.  

Measure A and W are both transportation sales taxes, authorized by the voters of San Mateo County, that fund a wide variety of transportation projects and programs in San Mateo County. The TA administers all of the funds raised through Measure A and 50% of Measure W funds. The other 50% of Measure W is under the purview of the SamTrans Board of Directors.

The Strategic Plan development process offers the TA and the community a chance to reflect on the current state of transportation funding and project delivery while preparing for the future needs of San Mateo County. A draft copy of the document is available online at www.smcta.com/strategicplan.

TA staff is holding the following outreach events where the public is invited to learn more about the Strategic Plan and offer feedback:
