The Community Task Force (CTF) brings together a range of interests and needs from the broader community. Its discussion will include input gathered from specific groups, populations, representative bodies and advocacy organizations.

The CTF is made up of members who applied to join and were selected to meet a number of criteria, with the goals of:

  • Representation of an organization, group, interest or affiliation
  • Connection to the project, study area or communities of interest as they relate to the bridge
  • Diversity of membership to reflect the community demographics age, gender, ethnicity/race and geography

Next CTF Meeting:
Monday, October 26, 2020
5:30-8pm
WebEx online meeting
