This fall we have an important opportunity to present your clients' transit/transportation needs to local planners and to pursue these needs with local decision-makers.

On Tuesday, October 27, Rochester Transit Planner, Bryan Law will join us as we consider the following questions:

  • What are the biggest transportation needs of our clients?
  • What options should be considered to provide better transit/public transportation?
  • What action could CNG and/or your agency pursue to improve client access?

At this meeting your agency can provide direct input at a critical time in the city transit/transportation planning process. The city transit plan will be a central element of both the city's comprehensive plan and the DMC transit/transportation plan.

In addition to your participation in considering the questions above, we are asking your help in providing city transit planners with crucial information regarding the transit/transportation needs of your clients especially as it relates to access to your services and programs.
WHETHER YOU WILL BE ATTENDING THIS MEETING OR NOT PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO FILL OUT THE SHORT FORM PROVIDED HERE .

 

 

Please also  mark your calendars for a follow-up meeting next month to discuss how CNG and/or your agency might best advocate for client needs as the various transit/transportation planning continues. DATE/TIME: Tuesday 11/24 7:30 - 9:00 AM | LOCATION: TBD

Governor Tim Walz announced the next phase of the COVID-19 response (May 14, 2020)

In conjunction with this announcement, the Governor signed Executive Orders to protect Minnesotans most at risk from the virus and safeguard workers. The first Executive Order strongly encourages Minnesotans at greatest risk of serious illness to continue staying home. The second Executive Order
ensures workers can raise concerns regarding the safety of their work environments without fear of discrimination or retaliation. It also protects workers from loss of income if they refuse to work under unsafe or unhealthy conditions.
Following the guidance of public health officials, the Governor today announced a preliminary set of health indicators that could trigger a decision to re-impose restrictions to slow the spread of the virus. These indicators will be refined over time as we learn more about the virus and the course of the
pandemic in Minnesota.
