NOTE:  The Council has tabled its consideration of the resolution approving the Transportation Plan.  This is intended to give Council members, staff, and the public more time to work through amendments.  The Council President will announce a new schedule for consideration of the Transportation Plan by the end of February. In the meantime, the Council strongly encourages members of the public to submit their suggested ideas for amendments as soon as practicable.  Please see below for details on submitting amendments.
