Working together, Lane Transit District (LTD) and the community are reimagining a transportation system that is more connected, sustainable, innovative, and equitable—and one that is built on trust, respect, and integrity through thoughtful collaboration. This requires a community outreach strategy that meets the needs of the communities LTD serves.
Community Outreach and Communications Assessment (COCA)
LTD is conducting a Community Outreach and Communications Assessment (COCA) to determine what the District can do to better engage and collaborate with the community. At the end of the assessment, a Community Outreach Framework will be developed. The framework will serve as a foundational guide for how LTD works alongside the public on projects and other LTD initiatives.
Communications & Engagement Survey
LTD surveyed the public to receive input regarding engagement and communication preferences for receiving information about LTD’s projects or initiatives. Results from the survey will inform the development of the Community Outreach Framework. The survey concluded on October 13, with 956 responses. Results from the survey will be posted when complete.
Community Steering Council
As another part of this assessment, LTD has established a Community Steering Council (CSC). The CSC is an ad hoc committee of community members charged with providing input, advice, and recommendations to LTD leadership and staff on the development and implementation of the Community Outreach Framework.
The CSC will have a critical role in shaping how LTD will engage the community to reimagine a transportation system that is more connected, sustainable, innovative, and equitable—and one that is built on trust, respect, and integrity through thoughtful collaboration.
The CSC will meet over approximately six meetings, beginning on September 13, 2023.
LTD put out a call for applicants on June 16, 2023 through a variety of communication channels, including radio, newsletters, social media, and local TV. The application period closed on August 8, 2023. We received 70 applications and were able to invite 20 individuals to participate.
Meetings were held on September 13, September 27, October 25, November 8, November 29, and December 12. Click the links below to access meeting agendas, presentations, and recordings.
