• appropriate performance standards and benchmarks for use in evaluating the City’s transportation system and program;
• transportation plans, projects and ordinances;
• elements of prioritized, unified Operating and Capital Improvement Program budgets for transportation; and
• a forum for public hearings and other public involvement mechanisms to assure community-based transportation plans, projects and issues, and to meet all Federal and other guidelines for public involvement in transportation projects where applicable.
