Maple Grove Mayor Mark Steffenson was recently appointed to the Metropolitan Council Transportation Advisory Board (TAB) by the Metro Cities Board of Directors.

The board is involved in the region's transportation planning process and is made up of state, regional and local officials; transportation providers; and community members. 

Metropolitan Council Transportation Advisory Board members review and comment on Metropolitan Council plans and recommends projects for federal funding.  

In early December, Mayor Steffenson submitted his application. His interest in being a member of TAB is rooted in the foundation of good planning and sound investment for the continued growth and expansion of our region.

“The role transportation plays in any area is critical to job centers, health care, transit, and movement of freight, but also impacts residents’ everyday actions such as getting to the grocery store, school, or place of worship,” Mayor Steffenson said in a city of Maple Grove press release.
