Public meetings set for Richardson, Arlington

The North Texas Council of Governments will host public meetings for input on the region's transportation plan.

The Regional Tranportation Council of the North Texas Council of Governments will conduct its monthly business meeting at 1 p.m. March 14 in Arlington at the Transportation Council Room at the North Texas Council of Government's offices, located at 616 Six Flags Dr. in Arlington.

In advance of that meeting, there will be three public meetings for community input on the plan, council staff said on Monday.

The meetings will be March 11-13 in Fort Worth, Richardson and Arlington - all with a start time of 6:30 p.m.
