Completed Recommendations (Now Defunct)

Public Outreach and Engagement

PO-7
Leverage resources for campaign and promotional advertisements by coordinating public transportation messaging in the region to attract non-transit-dependent (choice) riders. Messages should focus on making riding transit “cool.”
PO-8
Deploy social media applications, to facilitate use of transit including access to real-time information such as arrival times.

Public Policy Advocacy

PP-5
Federal Surface Transportation Authorization. Advocate for new authorization of the federal surface transportation programs with increased priority for funding public transit and non- motorized travel and integrated regional and local planning as means to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions from the transportation sector. Such a federal program should explicitly incorporate climate change and shift priorities toward programs that encourage reinvestment in existing infrastructure and communities (“fix-it-first” programs), support public transportation and transit-oriented development, and address congestion management through means other than new road building.
PP-9
Advocate to interests in Tallahassee for the preservation of the authority and resource capacity of the Water Management Districts in support of their continued participation in integrated water resource planning, particularly in southeast Florida where climate change and sea level rise pose additional challenges to the complex issues of alternative water supply development, Everglades restoration, salt water abatement, and drainage and flood control operations.
