What is a Coordinated Plan?
The Coordinated Plan is a "living" document that identifies public transportation needs within Harney County and solutions to those needs to be implemented over a five-year period. The Coordinated Plan is intended to organize the various public transportation providers in Harney County and provide them with a strategy to enhance their services and allocate funding.
Does Harney County currently have a Coordinated Plan?
Harney County's current Coordinated Plan is from 2016. While a relatively new plan, it needs to be updated every five years to stay current with any changes to existing services, identified needs, funding sources, and planned strategies.
What will the Coordinated Plan accomplish?
This project will update the 2016 Coordinated Plan. It will evaluate:
- How existing services, public needs, and funding sources have evolved;
- What progress has been made toward implementing the 2016 strategies; and
- Which strategies that have not yet been have been implemented are still relevant.
This effort will be achieved through guidance from a Technical Advisory Committee, interviews with stakeholders, and public outreach. Your perspectives and input are an important element of this update.
Opportunities to be Involved
The project team will be conducting two rounds of Public Outreach to give you an opportunity to participate in the Coordinated Plan Update process and provide your input. The first round of Public Outreach took place on Monday, July 11 and the results are summarized in THIS MEMO and will be incorporated into the Draft Coordinated Plan that is under development. The second round of Public Outreach is currently underway - see details at the top of this page and on the Meetings page!
