2.  Items from Members

3.  Items from Staff

(a)  Regional Transportation Disadvantaged Coordinating Board.

At the present time the CRTPA provides transportation planning services to
four counties, Gadsden, Jefferson, Leon, and Wakulla.  The CRTPA elected
officials meet as one board.  Federal law requires that the CRTPA produce a
long range transportation plan, which is a single plan is considering the
needs of all four counties.

At this time our Transportation Disadvantaged Coordinating Board serves Leon
County.  The CRTPA also provides planning services to the other three
counties.  They also have individual boards and individual Service Plans.

Staff is preparing an item for the November meeting of the CRTPA.  Staff
will be requesting approval to move forward with a regional Local
Coordinating Board.  This proposal would combine the four separate Local
Coordinating Board into a single board.

This proposal will not affect present service.  Transportation Providers and
Coordinators will remain.  Funding for trips will not be affected.   The
benefit from a combined board is the coordination of efforts and addressing
inter-county issues. 

Over the last year, the key pieces of any Service Plan has been completed.
Gadsden, Jefferson and Wakulla Counties have adopted Trip Priorities and
Local Standards fully consistent with the Leon County TD Service Plan.

Several positions on the board are held by representatives of  local and
state agencies which are obligated by Florida Statute to sit on the board.
Several of them serve on individual boards in 13 counties.  This would help
consolidate that effort. 

Should the CRTPA recommend consolidation, resolutions will be sought from
Gadsden, Jefferson, Leon, and Wakulla Board of County Commissioners
supporting the change.

Finally, staff will present the item to the Florida Commission for the
Transportation Disadvantaged (FCTD) at the next available meeting.

Staff believes this can be accomplished and in place for the beginning of
the fiscal year - July 1, 2015.

If approved a new Transportation Disadvantaged Service Plan would be
developed and completed within a statutory deadline of 120 days, or October
26, 2015.

Requested Action: For information and comment.

(b) Meeting Dates for 2015

Staff is proposing the following meeting dates for 2015:

*  January 14, 2015

*  April 15, 2015

*  October 14, 2015
