RightTrackFlorida.org to Provide Community Updates and Advocacy for the Transportation initiative.
The Central Florida Partnership today unveiled a new web site dedicated to the issue of Commuter Rail and its impact within the region and across the state. The site, Right Track Florida, www.RightTrackFlorida.org, will serve to provide current developments, key studies, important meetings, and recent news relating to this vital transportation project.
“Commuter rail is poised to immediately impact job growth and to offer long-term solutions by providing critical relief on our highways,” said Central Florida Partnership’s president and CEO Jacob Stuart. “This web site will provide Central Floridians the necessary information to not only learn the facts about commuter rail’s impact on our economy, but to also become active in the debate with legislative leaders. The Central Florida commuter-rail project is good for the economy, good for the environment and good for Florida,” continued Stuart, head of the business-led civic organization.
The Central Florida Partnership (CFP) believes a balanced transportation system consisting of improvements to roadways, bus transit, and a high capacity transit system is essential for continued economic prosperity and smart growth management throughout Central Florida.
The Partnership will be working with the Central Florida Commuter Rail Commission Governing Board to assist the Florida Department of Transportation with policy direction during the planning, design, construction and first seven years of operation for the Central Florida Commuter Rail system.
CFP is America’s Newest Regional Partnership – and serves as a platform where regional leaders can learn to better collaborate, cooperate and coordinate – resulting in improved communications throughout the Central Florida Region.
