Each month, PSTA’s CEO Brad Miller prepares a summary of some of the important topics discussed at the Board Meeting. This is the summary from March’s meeting:
Independent Audit Confirms Outstanding Financial Operations by PSTA
- The auditors commended PSTA’s internal controls and had no recommendations for improvements.
Coordinating Greenlight With Other Transportation Plans
- Long Range Transportation Plans
- Corridor Transportation Plans
- Community Planning Studies
- Master Plans
And of course the Greenlight Pinellas Plan.
It is critical that our community’s transportation plans coordinate well together to improve all modes: transit, roads, bikes, and walking to make our community an even better place to live.
PSTA’s Planning staff will begin taking a leadership role in coordinating transportation and land use planning activities within Pinellas County starting with a pilot project along US 19 in Clearwater.
