05:03 PM -- HB16-1304



Senator Heath presented House Bill 16-1304 to the committee. This bill, as amended by the House Transportation and Energy Committee, requires the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) to assist each of the 15 Transportation Planning Regions (TPRs) in holding at least one community meeting about transportation planning and funding in each TPR by October 1, 2016. The Office of Economic Development and International Trade and CDOT, in close collaboration with the TPR, must provide extensive public notice in advance of each community meeting through methods outlined in the bill.



The bill specifies meeting protocol, including the availability of remote public testimony, if practicable. Each meeting must include representation from the transportation commissioners whose districts fall within the region, the area CDOT regional transportation director's office, and any overlapping economic development district or organization. Other specified government officials must also be invited.



No later than November 1, 2016, the TPR representative who convened the meeting, assisted by CDOT staff, is required to develop and submit to CDOT's executive director a report ranking their region's top transportation priorities and the preferred means of raising revenue to fund those priorities. CDOT's executive director must compile the regional reports into a statewide report that ranks top transportation priorities and preferred funding mechanisms, and reflects the priorities and choices of each TPR and its community meeting. CDOT's executive director must provide a copy of the report to each TPR, the Statewide Transportation Advisory Committee (STAC), and also present it to during CDOT's 2017 SMART Act hearing. The bill repeals on July 1, 2017.
