Lee County Transit Task Force

The Board of County Commissioners directed county administration in September 2010 to create a work plan that provides funding options for LeeTran. A Transit Task Force was formed to advise the Commission on funding options and transit issues.

 

The task force completed its original mission and presented its recommendations to the Board of County Commissioners in February 2012. It was agreed that the task force would continue its work with the objective of identifying a sustainable funding source for transit and developing a proposal for a transit authority.

 

The task force's work through 2012 included a recommendation that the group be designated an official advisory board to the Board of County Commissioners. An administrative code was drafted forming the Transit Special Management Committee. The group also created a draft of the state legislation necessary to form a Transit Authority. These documents will be submitted to the BOCC in April.

 

The task force has been composed of 19 members of the community representing large employers, health care, social services, higher education, and transportation and planning professionals.
