Local Leaders Will Highlight Economic Impact and Job Creation Potential of Transportation Projects
Congressman Artur Davis today announced the details of three upcoming Transportation Summits to be held in Selma, Birmingham and Tuscaloosa. The sessions are designed to foster an in-depth understanding of transportation-related projects in communities across the 7th Congressional District in advance of the federal transportation bill.
“I anticipate that I will have the opportunity to offer some level of input in the development of the transportation bill,” said Congressman Davis. “These summits will allow me and members of my staff to hear directly from the local elected officials, economic developers, and business leaders who are immersed in the details of these projects and understand their communities’ transportation needs best.”
Attending stakeholders will have the opportunity to make a brief presentation about their project, including its economic impact and potential for jobs creation provided that they submit a copy of the completed project questionnaire in advance. See attachments below for details.
Prospective attendees should contact Special Projects Coordinator Sissy Hembree at (205) 254-1960 with any questions.
