2015 Transportation and Mobility Committee news:

Patrick DeCorla-Souza, P3 Program Manager, Office of Innovative Program Delivery, U.S. Department of Transportation Federal Highway Administration, presented to the Transportation and Mobility Committee on March 11 about Public-Private Partnerships. The committee learned more about P3’s at its April 8 meeting when Greg Cannito, managing director of Corvias Solutions, which helps public sector institutions partner with the private sector using a public-private partnership model (P3), made a presentation.

The committee had identified improvements to Maryland’s P3 legislation as its primary focus. Compared to surrounding jurisdictions, Maryland’s relatively new legislation is not as conducive to attracting high quality P3 deals. The committee hopes to conduct an in-depth survey of best practices from around the country and make recommendations about how to craft P3 legislation that would be responsible and reasonable. With a scarcity of transportation dollars, the GBC hopes to maximize the use of P3’s, particularly in this region. The committee continues to work on a 10-year strategic transportation plan.

EmpowerTrans Transportation Improvement Zone (TIZ) Survey

Citizens Planning and Housing Association (CPHA), in partnership with NeighborRide and the Howard County Office of Transportation, is bringing together residents with employers and workforce program managers to identify the main transportation challenges in getting to and from jobs.

CPHA is working to develop a new model, called transportation improvement zones (TIZs), which will bring together businesses, employees, residents, and others to create solutions where everyone benefits. Based off of successful programs already running in Montgomery County, these new partnerships can help provide more transportation choices and offer better access to good jobs right here in the Baltimore region.

Please offer your input by taking this survey.
