TRANSPORTATION AGENCY FOR MONTEREY COUNTY

BOARD MEETING HIGHLIGHTS
December 3, 2014

DEPARTING BOARD MEMBERS HONORED FOR YEARS OF SERVICE

The Board of Directors for the Transportation Agency for Monterey County honored two of its departing board members for their years of exemplary service.

Departing Monterey City Councilmember, Frank Sollecito was recognized for being a tireless advocate for regional transportation needs during his eight years of service. He’s been a board member, as well as, a Board Chari, and has been the Vice-Chair of the Rail Policy Committee for four years. As Vice-Chair he was instrumental in helping to set policy to bring two rail services to Monterey County to help enhance mobility opportunities and lead to economic vitality for the region. In that same vein, Councilmember Sollecito has been a dedicated supporter of finding a solution to address concerns about safety and congestion on Highway 156.

Also recognized for 15 years of service, was Supervisor Lou Calcagno. During his tenure he served as Board Chairperson in 2002 and 2010. As a Board member, Supervisor Calcagno was instrumental in building a coalition of support and funding for establishing Monterey-Salinas Transit service between the South County cities and Salinas, now known as Line 23; served as the champion for the US 101 Prunedale Improvement Project, persuading local and state decision-makers to support a more modest, safety-focused project when the cost of the Prunedale Bypass became prohibitive, always assuring that community interests were respected throughout the design and construction of the project; represented the Transportation Agency before the California Transportation Commission and the State Department of Transportation, tirelessly advocating for funding for major highway safety improvements, including the State Route 1 at Salinas Road interchange, improvements to the interchange at US 101 and Airport Boulevard, and the US 101 interchange at San Juan Road.

With gratitude for their service, the Board of Directors bid a fond farewell to Frank Sollecito and Lou Calcagno!
