REGION — For many years, transportation has been a challenge in the Greater Franklin County area. While services do exist, additional creative opportunities are needed to help increase access to critical medical appointments, education, social services, the grocery store, and to visit with family. A coalition of community organizations is interested in strengthening transportation in the region. United Way of the Tri-Valley Area, Community Concepts, Franklin Community Health Network, Greater Franklin Development Council (GFDC), Kennebec Valley Community Action Program (KVCAP), and Western Maine Transportation Services are convening a summit called Community Conversation: Moving Transportation Forward in Greater Franklin County.
The transportation summit will be hosted via Zoom on Thursday, October 8th from 4pm – 5:30pm. Anyone with ideas, challenges, or suggestions is encouraged to join this virtual zoom meeting. Visit www.uwtva.org for details on how to join the virtual summit.
As part of this summit, community input is needed prior
