NCDOT Investment Commission Seeks Input

The NC FIRST Commission evaluates North Carolina’s current and future transportation investment needs and advises the Secretary of Transportation of new or better ways to ensure that critical financial resources are available in the future.

RALEIGH — The North Carolina Future Investment Resources for Sustainable Transportation Commission is looking for feedback from on future transportation investment options.

The commission, also called NC FIRST commission, launched Monday a 15-question web survey available until April 9 that will assess what future revenue options should be considered for the Commission’s final recommendations in 2021. The questions assess consumer mobility preferences, transportation needs, potential investment options and more.

The NC FIRST Commission was created by former Transportation Secretary Jim Trogdon in April 2019. The 14-member commission is composed of a diverse group of individuals with expertise in finance, business and public policy.

The commission is tasked with evaluating the state’s current and future transportation investment needs, using research of national and international trends in order to advise the transportation secretary on new or better ways to create a long-term transportation investment strategy to ensure North Carolina’s economic vitality and competitiveness in the future.
