Zimmerman Appointed to Transportation Task Force

Arlington County board member Chris Zimmerman has been appointed to a special task force of the National Capital Region Transportation Planning Board.

The task force will try to find a way to prioritize the backlog of “unfunded transportation needs” around the DC area.

“I think it is fair to say that there has been frustration… that, despite its name, TPB is in many ways a passive player in actual planning on a regional basis,” Zimmerman told us in an email. “This, I think, is an effort to find a way toward more effective, and realistic, planning for the future of the National Capital Region. I am certainly hopeful that it may help move us in the right direction.”
