 Steering Committee Role and Responsibilities


A Steering Committee of representatives from each of the municipalities and jurisdictions within the study area, other government agencies, community organizations and citizen groups will provide input and will guide the study.

The Committee will meet monthly, starting in August and continuing through April.  Throughout the study, Steering Committee members will receive information on transit service in peer cities, funding options for transit, legal and legislative constraints, and on the results of the ongoing public outreach that is a critical part of the study, including a public opinion polling effort.

As representatives of larger groups within the Pikes Peak community, Steering Committee members are expected to report back regularly to their constituents, as well as bring their feedback to the Steering Committee.

The MMT staff and consulting team will provide the following support to the Steering Committee:
