TMACOG planning forum setWritten by Staff Reports | | email@example.com
The Toledo Metropolitan Area Council of Government will host the annual transportation summit from 1 to 7:30 p.m. Sept. 29 at
Owens Community College.
The opening session will focus on TMACOG’s long-range plan, “On The Move: 2007-2035 Transportation Plan.” Those gathering at the summit will begin to identify specific transportation problems and opportunities during a “needs input” session. Public input also is being solicited for On the Move at area libraries this fall.
“Citizen input is vital to our efforts to improve the region’s transportation infrastructure,” said James Hartung, president of Toledo-Lucas County Port Authority and chair of the TMACOG Transportation Council. “Transportation continues to be the cornerstone of our economy and we must meet the needs of the future to have a role in the global economy.”
There will be a dinner and a keynote speech from Rohan E. Champion, former vice president of corporate strategy and worldwide business development at Federal Express.
At Federal Express, his organizations were responsible for the formulation and execution of FedEx’s global electronic commerce and logistics initiatives.
