Transportation Vision for Livingston County: Dr. Leo Hanifin of Livingston County Transportation Coalition
Dr. Leo Hanifin raises some very interesting questions in this presentation, complete with the why’s, the how’s and the who’s for making transportation a reality in Livingston County. To fully serve the transit dependent residents, this must become a reality. Transportation would support our aging seniors, stimulate the economy, create a true return on investment, attract skilled workers and make our community a more attractive place to live, work, gain an education and do business. This presentation dives in to how to truly support transportation, what is involved and next steps that must be taken…as well as how to become involved in these initiatives!
