Executive Director of Regional Transportation Company Discusses Sustainability

February 27, 2010 at 12:03 am Leave a comment

This is the third of a series of posts that will note the key points from Directions 2010.

Mr. Lee Gibson is the Executive Director of the Regional Transportation Commission (RTC).

In his speech, he indicated that the RTC is trying to weave in sustainability concepts to their business model. Mr. Gibson’s definition of sustainability is, “making business decisions that are good for the economy.” This is an important aspect of sustainability. There are also the social and environmental components of corporate responsibility. I believe that corporate responsibility and sustainability go hand in hand. What we have found is that corporations that have a focus on environmental and social responsibility are better able to achieve economic sustainability.

Current RTC road projects include the widening of 395 from Moana to the I-80 interchange, and the construction of the Meadowood interchange.

Future projects include:

  • The SE Connector
  • The Pyramid Corridor/Connector

Long-term plans could include a street car for Virginia Street, and the development of a partnership with the City of Reno.
