The Point: RCTC will be hosting two tele-town halls on May 13 and 14

As one of the fastest growing regions in the country, Riverside County has become a place where more and more people want to live. This continued population and economic growth, means that now, more than ever, our county needs a comprehensive plan to improve our transportation infrastructure. We have a Plan! On April 10, the Riverside County Transportation Commission (RCTC) approved the Traffic Relief Plan (TRP or Plan), an aspirational blueprint of transportation improvements designed to reduce traffic congestion, implement roadway safety measures, and offer greater mobility options for communities across the county. 

RCTC will be hosting two tele-town halls to provide a forum for Riverside County residents to learn more about the approved Plan and an opportunity to ask questions. RCTC Chair and City of Beaumont Councilmember, Lloyd White, will host the western county town-hall and RCTC Second Vice-Chair and Cathedral City Councilmember, Raymond Gregory, will host the eastern county tele-town hall.

Take part in the tele-town hall events: 

  • Eastern Riverside County: Monday, May 13 at 6 p.m.
    • Call (855) 756-7520 Ext. 106349#
  • Western Riverside County: Tuesday, May 14 at 6 p.m.
    • Call (855) 756-7520 Ext. 106350#

The TRP outlines Riverside County’s comprehensive strategy to address our growing communities’ immediate and long-term transportation needs. Implementing the TRP projects and services will require significant new funding from local, state, and federal sources. Later this summer, Commissioners representing every city in the county and all five members of the County Board of Supervisors will decide what steps can be taken to fund projects outlined in the TRP.
