Problems and Solutions Report:  Animal Crashes in the Kerr-Tar Region

National Association of Development Organzations' Legislative Presentation

National Transit Institute Training Workshop Information:  Land Use and Transportation. The KTRPO participated in this 3-day training in Charlotte in June to help us better understand the intregal nature of transportation, land use and site design.  The lessons learned in the workshop served as a refresher to my graduate studies at NCSU's College of Design but also helped me to learn of new avenues to help the KTRPO in the future address some of our transportation issues.  The materials from the workshop are included on a disk for you to peruse. Please let me know if I can get you a copy!
