July 8, 2015 Meeting Agenda June 10, 2015 Meeting Summary
RTD FasTracks Gold Line Update
JEFFTAAG normally meets on the second Wednesday of the month from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. in the Lookout Mountain Room (lower level) of the Jefferson County Courts and Administration Building. The public is welcome to attend and observe the meetings.
JEFFTAAG has remained a policy group since May 2003. In 2003, the CWTP group reconvened to update the plan and set upon an effort to obtain funding to implement the plan. The group resolved to actively participate in regional, state and federal policy matters related to Transportation funding. The name County Wide Transportation Plan Group did not reflect the efforts of the group and they settled on a new name: Jefferson County Transportation Advisory and Advocacy Group (JEFFTAAG). In late 2008, the group adopted a change in name to the Jefferson County Transportation Action and Advocacy Group. Historically, Jefferson County and its cities have received less in federal funding than their fair share. The Group succeeded in modifying DRCOG project ranking methods and fund allocation to factor in funding equity based on population as a percentage of regional population. In this effort, JEFFTAAG in collaboration with city councils and the Board of County Commissioners, developed and distributed brochures highlighting regional funding deficiencies and sent letters in support of their positions. After 2003, the focus of the group has been on consideration of forming an RTA, supporting FasTracks and weighing in on transportation funding matters. This newly adopted strategic Plan reflects the broad focus of the group.
