T-board intends to take on more work projects

-A A +A
By Katy Korkos

The Transportation Board held a special meeting Thursday to fill in the blanks of the work plan template provided to them by the county.The county requires each of the boards and commissions to submit an annual work plan for review each February, so this is the time of year for each board to define what issues they want to deal with in the upcoming months. The work plan year runs concurrently with the fiscal year, from July 1, 2008, through June 30, 2009.Each item on the work plan must fit within the county’s vision statement, adopted by council in 2002. The “Envision Los Alamos” statement includes several items that pertain directly to the Transportation Board, such as “improve mobility,” “upgrade infrastructure,” “diversify the economy” and “act regionally.”The purpose of the Transportation Board is to oversee transportation matters, review the snow and ice control plan and advise the county council concerning such matters. Its list of accomplishments in the last working year was a long one, including narrowing down the options for an intersection for the proposed West Jemez Bypass, reviewing plans for the Diamond Drive reconstruction and suggesting that sidewalks be built on the Trinity-Sandia Loop.“The board serves as a reality check for staff,” Mark Dunham said.
