[August 05, 2008]  In late May, the Logan and Mason Transit Partnership Group began the second phase of the five-step primer process to bring federal transportation dollars to Logan and Mason counties. However, after efforts to assess needs via a survey, the group is on hold until it obtains over 800 more survey responses.

Determining transportation needs of the community is a crucial part of the process as the group moves forward in developing a coordinated public transportation effort. A survey, developed by the Interagency Coordinating Committee on Transportation, is used to determine who might need transportation, where they need to go and when they need to go. The purpose is also to identify gaps between what is needed and what is provided.

Logan and Mason County residents are encouraged to visit the Community Action Partnership of Central Illinois site at to fill out the survey. Hard copies of the surveys may be filled out and returned to various locations throughout the counties, including the Lincoln Public Library, Jacksonville Area Center for Independent Living, Logan and Mason County health departments and the Community Action offices in Lincoln and Havana.

"If we don't successfully finish phase 2, our efforts to bring the transportation dollars to Logan and Mason counties will end. The needs assessment is a critical and required part of the process to obtain the grant," said Angela Stoltzenburg. Stoltzenburg is the executive director of the Community Action Partnership of Central Illinois and is serving as the team leader for the transportation initiative.

"This effort isn't for those who can't drive or have no transportation; it is for the entire community. It's about creating transportation options for everyone," said Stoltzenburg.

Community Action Partnership of Central Illinois is a private, nonprofit organization that advocates for the low-income and senior residents of a six-county service area.
