A big “thank you” to the 488 neighbors who participated in the Community Shuttle Survey in August. At the September 15 Highlands Council Board of Trustees meeting, the Highlands Council’s Transportation Solutions Committee reviewed the data collected and recommended the board move to the next phase of research: virtual focus group meetings with interested members of the community.
Focus groups will be presented with a summary of data collected thus far, and new information such as suggested routes, shuttle stops, and cost. Transportation Solutions Committee members will answer questions, make note of your suggestions, and take your feedback back to the full committee for debrief.
If, through the focus groups, we learn the community shuttle idea is not supported, Highlands Council will not move forward. If the community is in favor, then in January 2021, we expect to start seeking funding via commercial sponsorships, state and federal grants, and a potential small increase in our homeowner’s association dues, all in an effort to have this new amenity funded and ready to safely launch when COVID-19 restrictions deem it is safe to do so.
