Tackling transportation and growth in Jefferson County

By Staff | May 31, 2013

With new citizens moving to Jefferson County daily, the county and the region must continue to explore opportunities that will help keep pace with an ever-growing demand on our roadway system. On Wednesday, June 12, from 7-9 p.m., transportation experts and stakeholders will gather at the Robert C. Byrd Legislative Studies Auditorium at Shepherd University to discuss innovative ways to approach future challenges.

The panel will include Sen. Herb Snyder, who sponsored and helped enact legislation in support of the MARC commuter train to DC and commuter rail expansion in WV; Cheryl Keyrouze, executive director of the Eastern Panhandle Transit Authority; Jennifer Brockman, director of Jefferson County Planning and Zoning; and J. Lee Thorne, district engineer/manager, Region 5, WV Department of Highways.

The League of Women Voters, a nonpartisan political organization, encourages the informed and active participation of citizens in government, works to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and influences public policy through education and advocacy. Like all League events, this forum is free and open to the public.
