Orange County today announced that two public hearings on the transit tax and overall transit plan will be held in April. The hearings are designed to elicit feedback from members of the public on how the County should approach transit in the coming years. They will be part of regularly-scheduled meetings of the County Board of Commissioners, and will have two general parts.
First, a presentation will be given to detail various elements of the plan: the legislative issues involved in issuing the tax, the partnership with Durham County, the revenues, the expenditures, the timeline, etc. Second, members of the public will have the chance to speak on the plan by making comments, offering suggestions or posing questions.
The first hearing will be held in Hillsborough on April 3 at the Social Services in Hillsborough Commons. The second hearing will be at the on April 17 in Chapel Hill at the Southern Human Services. Be sure to come out and urge the commissioners to support transit and put the tax on the ballot this Fall!
