Our Community. Our Future.
As the region’s metropolitan transit and transportation planning organization, the RTC strives to be at the forefront in making critical transportation improvements and infrastructure investments for the future of Southern Nevada. Accomplishing this feat requires partnerships with the entire community, including elected officials, business leaders, local governments and public and private organizations.
To address technological transportation advancements as well as the region’s growing resident and tourism mobility demands, the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC) board of commissioners authorized RTC staff to create the Transportation Resource Advisory Committee and Community Collaboration (TRAC) in September 2015. The board also gave direction to develop and execute a community engagement plan to provide information about RTC initiatives and to seek input from Southern Nevada residents, partners, and a diverse network of organizations on the transportation and mobility needs of Southern Nevada.
Community Conversations and Collaboration
Community collaboration is a fundamental component of the TRAC process. Through extensive outreach, the RTC collected 7,000 survey responses between February and July 2016 from a diverse group of community organizations, business leaders, and neighborhood groups about their vision for the future of transportation in Southern Nevada.
Roadway Planning and Funding
When TRAC began meeting in January 2016, Southern Nevada had identified $6.2 billion worth of unfunded roadway projects, and TRAC was challenged with finding funding solutions to accommodate these unmet needs. TRAC delved into six months of in-depth study of Southern Nevada’s economic forecast, current and future transportation infrastructure priorities, and available funding options. At the conclusion of the committee’s review, TRAC made the following recommendations that were presented and adopted by the RTC board. Many of these recommendations have been completed or are ongoing.
Fuel Revenue Indexing
TRAC supported the extension of Fuel Revenue Indexing (FRI) as the most viable funding option for roadway projects in Southern Nevada. With the passage of Question 5 in November 2016, FRI will continue through 2026, generating up to $3 billion and creating up to 25,000 jobs to fund and build critical roadway projects serving our community and economy. Through TRAC’s support of FRI and its recommendation for RTC staff to incorporate the top four transportation values into the RTC’s planning processes and prioritization of unfunded projects, high priority projects will be evaluated by the following values:
