Transit Development Plan
At the request of the City and County of Kenosha, SEWRPC is preparing a short-range, 5- year plan for public transit in Kenosha County. It will include recommendations for transit service and capital improvements for both the City and County transit systems over the period 2013 through 2017. The most recent newsletter prepared for the plan provides an overview of the work performed to date.
To provide guidance to the technical staffs in the preparation of this plan, and to involve concerned and affected public officials and citizen leaders more directly and actively in the development of transit service policies and improvement proposals, an Advisory Committee was appointed by the City of Kenosha Mayor and the Kenosha County Executive. The Advisory Committee is responsible for proposing to Kenosha County, the City of Kenosha, and SEWRPC, after careful study and evaluation, a plan identifying the recommended transit service improvements in Kenosha County over the next 5 years.
Study Meetings and Materials
In general, the study staff will prepare report chapters for review by the Advisory Committee. Advisory Committee meetings are open to the public. Meeting agendas, minutes, and materials that have been provided to the Committee for review will be posted to the website as they become available.
The study findings and recommendations will be documented in SEWRPC Community Assistance Planning Report No. 281, Kenosha County Transit Development Plan: 2011-2015 (see outline of report). Drafts of the individual chapters of the report will be prepared during the course of the study for review by the Advisory Committee.
Public Informational Meetings
Three public meetings were held in April 2011 in order to provide the public with opportunities to learn about the Kenosha County Transit Development Plan, discuss it with staff, and comment on the work performed to date. Commission staff prepared a Record of Public Comments summarizing the comments received during that process.
