Posted: Mon, September 18, 2017

The regional Transportation Advisory Group has worked with EARL Public Transit and Upper Explorerland to plan a regional Transportation Summit on October 18th at NICC (Calmar).  NICC is a partner for the event and has provided the Wilder Business Center location, and funds were granted by ITC to assist with planning and implementation.  Two keynote speakers and 9 best practice speakers will shed light on transportation concerns and solutions for NE Iowa.  We invite regional stakeholders in economic development, transportation, workforce, tourism, education, non-profit/services, and recreation to attend the event to engage in a discussion of how transportation supports economic development and quality of life for area residents.  Visit the following websites to register and learn more:
