Williamson, Inc. is featuring a Transportation Summit at its Business Luncheon from 11:30 a.m. – 1 p.m. on Thursday, June 6, 2019, at the Franklin Marriott Cool Springs.
The program will feature information about the South Corridor Study. The study will result in a plan that will identify and recommend a locally preferred alternative for transit service, assess the potential impacts of transit investment on economic development outcomes and incorporate community feedback into the cost-effectiveness analysis in order to recommend short-, mid-, and long-term capital and operating improvement.
Then hear from Jackie Millet, mayor of Lone Tree, Colorado, a peer community of Williamson County, who has transformed public transportation through business partnerships. Currently, Lone Tree is home to two Regional Transportation District (RTD) light rail stations – The County Line station and Lincoln Station, and offers a free shuttle through their Lone Tree Link service.
Chamber members and nonmembers are invited to attend the Transportation Summit on Thursday, June 6 to learn how transit is being addressed in Middle Tennessee through the South Corridor Study and how similar communities are working to combat this issue.
