Transportation and mobility are the focus for the next Breakfast Bites quarterly meeting on June 8. Breakfast Bites is a quarterly business development event sponsored by the Georgetown Main Street Program.
Georgetown on the Move is the theme for this meeting in which Nathaniel Waggoner, a transportation analyst for the City of Georgetown, will speak to a range of transportation topics and projects. Waggoner will discuss the Overall Transportation Plan that establishes the long-range framework for multi-modal transportation planning in the city over a 30-year horizon. That plan provided guidance for the Transportation Bond Committee and the City Council to develop of a list of 20 transportation and mobility projects that were approved by Georgetown voters last year. Two additional initiatives related to the Overall Transportation Plan include the Sidewalk Master Plan, the first phase of which was funded with $10 million from the 2015 bond election, and the fixed route bus plan, which is currently being considered by the City Council.
Waggoner also will address a growing network of on-demand transportation options, including rides provided by Faith in Action Caregivers. And finally, Waggoner will provide overviews of the Williams Drive Corridor Study and the current public outreach and assessment process related to the Austin Avenue Bridges. Questions and discussion will follow Waggoner’s presentation.
