PUBLIC NOTICE FOR PUBLIC INPUT ON DRAFT POLICY FOR DISPARATE IMPACT AND DISPROPORTIONATE BURDEN
 

Pursuant to federal requirements under Title VI and Executive Order 12898 on environmental justice principles, the CATA Board of Directors is adopting a policy to define when a proposed significant service or fare change would have a disparate impact on members of a group identified by race, color, or national origin or disproportionate burden on low-income persons.

CATA has developed a draft policy that revised Policy #604, Service and Route Changes. The draft policy is available for review here. Interested persons or groups can also obtain a copy by emailing planning@cata.org (use “Title VI Policy” for the subject) or mailing CATA Title VI Policy, 4615 Tranter Street, Lansing, MI 48910.

Persons or organizations may comment on the draft policy in writing on or before June 16, 2017, to CATA at the address above or by email to planning@cata.org (use “Title VI Policy” for the subject).
