MORAINE HOSTS SOUTHEAST LAKE TRANSIT FORUMS
October 10, 2012 and again December 5, 2012
Moraine Township was the host organization convening a meeting on behalf of the Lake County Coordinated Transportation Services Committee/LCCTSC. Present were mayors, senior center staff leaders and all five township Supervisors from contiguous townships affected by the planning proposals. They heard presentations from LCCTSC Board members and Pace. Ideas met with enthusiasm, and a second Transit Forum was held, also hosted by Moraine Township, on December 5. There, they heard from experienced Ride-In-Kane and Barrington Area transit leaders, and Pace staff. The goal is to improve collaboration and coordination among all townships in Lake County, to provide cost-effective and reliable public transportation, with an emphasis on seniors and paratransit as well as work destinations. Discussion and planning will be ongoing.
