The Community Task Force (CTF) brings together a range of interests and needs from the broader community. Its discussion will include input gathered from specific groups, populations, representative bodies and advocacy organizations.

The CTF is made up of members who applied to join and were selected to meet a number of criteria, with the goals of:

  • Representation of an organization, group, interest or affiliation
  • Connection to the project, study area or communities of interest as they relate to the bridge
  • Diversity of membership to reflect the community demographics, age, gender, ethnicity/race and geography

Next CTF Meeting:
Will be on Monday, January 24, 2022 from 6 - 8 pm. This virtual meeting will be live streamed and a link provided on this website one week before the meeting. A meeting recording will be posted to this webpage one week after the meeting.
