Ms. Glitman welcomed the group and gave a brief overview of the University Transportation Center. The University of Vermont, which was the location of the meeting, was designated as a National University Transportation Center in August of 2005 and has been actively involved in transportation education and research.
Mr. Keating thanked local officials for attending and noted that the CCMPO is considering using scenario planning in the upcoming update of their metropolitan transportation plan. An objective of the workshop is for the CCMPO Board to learn about using scenario planning so they can consider it as a tool for the plan update. A common theme of the scenario planning experiences presented today is the use of extensive and intensive public participation. Following the meeting, CCMPO staff will review findings and determine how to move forward.
