The meeting will include a review of the DRAFT list of proposed transportation project applications received by MVRPC as a result of our recent solicitation of local jurisdictions for projects requesting regionally-controlled transportation funds.  All project funding requests are being considered for SFY 2024 funding with the potential for earlier funding, as available.  Following the public comment period, staff will evaluate each project utilizing MVRPC’s Project Funding Prioritization Decision-Making Process and recommend selected projects for funding to MVRPC’s Board of Directors at, or before, the March 7, 2019 board meeting.
