The Collier Public Transit & Neighborhood Enhancement (PTNE) Division is announcing a 15-day public comment period for the Draft Transit Development Plan (TDP) Annual Report.
In order to receive State Block Grant Funds for transit system operations, each transit agency must develop a Transit Development Plan (TDP) Major Update every five years and an annual update/progress report for all other years. The deadline for all TDP updates is September 1st. This year the requirement is to develop an annual update/progress report. This report addresses the past year’s accomplishments as compared to the original implementation program; analyzes any discrepancies between the plan and its implementation and steps that will be taken to attain original goals and objectives. It makes any revisions to the implementation program for the coming year based on the annual review; adds recommendations for the new tenth year of the updated plan; revises the financial plan; and revises the list of projects or services needed to meet the goals and objectives; including projects for which funding may not have been identified.
The public comment period for the Draft TDP Annual Report will end on June 2nd, 2023. The Draft TDP Annual Report will be on display at the customer service desks at the sites listed below:
