The Community Transportation Association of Idaho will hold public meetings next week to talk about regional mobility plans. One meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, Sept. 1, in Hailey and two are set for Magic Valley locations. The Hailey meeting gets under way at 9:30 a.m. at the old Blaine County Courthouse.

The association is a nonprofit organization that works with the Idaho Transportation Department to help establish a statewide "multi-modal" transportation network throughout Idaho.

According to a news release, the meetings are being held to review current mobility plans, existing services and unmet needs.

The news release urges attendance by citizens interested in "improving local mobility options," planners, transportation providers, walking and bicycle advocates, representatives of local and state agencies, community organizations and elected officials.

The meetings in the Magic Valley are set for Tuesday, Aug. 31. The first starts at 10 a.m. at the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare building at 2241 Overland Road in Burley. The second starts at 1:30 p.m. at the department's building at 601 Poleline Road in Twin Falls.
