The movement of people and goods is an essential part of life in the San Luis Valley. Providing a safe and efficient transportation system through transportation planning is a key role of the San Luis Valley Development Resources Group.
SLVDRG serves as the coordinating agency for the San Luis Valley Transportation Planning Region, an area that includes the Alamosa, Chaffee, Conejos, Costilla, Mineral, Rio Grande, and Saguache counties. The role of the SLV TPR is to facilitate regular communication between the Colorado Department of Transportation and local government and private parties in the planning region. This includes planning quarterly meetings of the SLVTPR; enabling public input into state transportation planning and projects; maintaining a record of meetings; attending local, regional and state meetings on transportation issues; and keeping TPR members informed of transportation project status and funding opportunities.
The transportation planning process is meant to be an inclusive process with open meetings and public participation encouraged. Regular meetings of the SLV TPR are held quarterly on the first Thursday of the second month of the quarter. Meetings may be held more frequently as work begins on the next Regional Transportation Plan. For more information about meeting dates and topics, please contact Hew Hallock.
