TAM and the County of Marin received funds from the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) to update a community based transportation plan for Marin City. The transportation plan was a collaborative effort involving residents and community-based organizations (CBOs) providing services within minority and low-income neighborhoods, the Marin City Community Services District, Marin Housing Authority, Marin County Community Development Agency, Health and Human Services, Nutrition and Wellness Program local transit operators, County of Marin Public works and TAM and MTC.
The Marin City Community-Based Transportation Plan (CBTP) process began in September 2014 and was accepted by the County of Marin in April 2015. The current plan process builds on a 2009 CBTP prepared for Marin City and is an update that assesses what has been accomplished as a result of the 2009 Plan and what new community needs exist. The Plan also identifies potential funding sources to address these needs, including the 2015 MTC Lifeline Program.
Monthly presentations were \ provided to the Marin City Community Services District Board from October through January, who developed recommendations and helped to identify priorities in the plan, as well as serve as a sounding board and forum for development of the CBTP Update. Focus group meetings were hosted to invite ideas from various community group members and a Community Workshop was held, with attention to seniors, commuters, and youth in the Marin City area. A Technical Advisory Committee, comprised of Marin County Agencies, Marin City CSD representatives, Marin Transit, Golden Gate Transit and TAM, played an integral role in evaluating recommendations for pedestrian, bicycle and transportation improvement projects.
