Please register for the forum or confirm your attendance via email to Kelly Karll karll@semcog.org. The Water Resources Plan for Southeast Michigan has been under development since April 2016 with a targeted completion of March 2018. The Task Force is now focusing on the region’s infrastructure, with drinking water as a top priority. The Drinking Water Forum will include an opportunity to bring forward regional priorities to support and work towards a sustainable infrastructure system. Additionally, SEMCOG has been selected as a pilot area by the Governor’s office to develop a pilot Regional Asset Management program. Drinking water systems are a major component of this pilot project. Forum topics will include: • Role of Drinking Water in the Pilot Asset Management Program • Strategic Investments / Disinvestments • Funding and Collaboration • Workforce Development • Public Education • Legislative and Regulatory Challenges The demographic and economic changes that have taken place in Southeast Michigan over the last decade, combined with the aging of the infrastructure system and the decline in available revenue to maintain it, have led to significant infrastructure challenges in our region. This drinking water forum will direct development of SEMCOG’s policies guiding our legislative efforts and work with our members. A meeting agenda will be available by the end of May.

The Regional Transit Authority Board of Directors is meeting to vote on placing a regional transit proposal on the ballot for the four-county region. Be there to speak up in favor. It's time our region had the opportunity to come together for transit! The RTA meeting begins at 2 pm at RTA/SEMCOG offices, 1001 Woodward. We'll be on the ground outside beforehand to rally and canvass passersby. https://www.facebook.com/events/1405307526162951/

The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) is proposing to accelerate the $4 billion reconstruction and widening of I-94 in the City of Detroit, I-75 in southern Oakland County, and US-23 in Washtenaw and Livingston County. These roads need repair, but widening them will waste tax dollars and harm our most vulnerable communities. We need to fix our existing roads and invest in a public transit system that reconnects our region, not in unnecessary highway widening that drives us farther apart. On December 6, MDOT will bring its proposal to accelerate highway widening to the Executive Committee of the Southeast Michigan Council of Governments (SEMCOG), which is voting on amendments to the region’s Transportation Improvement Plan. There will be a public comment period at the meeting, which begins at 1 pm. Join MOSES and our coalition partners: tell SEMCOG, MDOT, and Governor Snyder to stop, look and listen, and choose a better path for Michigan and our region. http://www.facebook.com/events/553635308064336/
