Community Outreach

MARC transportation and research staff conducted more than 100 presentations and discussions with a variety of community organizations, civic groups, local governments and the general public from late 2008 through 2010. Staff provided an overview of Transportation Outlook 2040 and talked with attendees about transportation challenges, needs and goals, opportunities in their communities, and — later in the process — growth and development scenarios.
