Townsend Public Affairs helped the longtime client, the City of Brea, secure another exciting funding win recently. The City has been awarded $1 Million in grant funds through the Bicycle Corridor Improvement Program. They were ranked first out of all the applications!
The City will use these funds for the “Tracks at Brea” trail project. The tracks at Brea are an essential component of the transportation system in the community. The trail route will eventually include over four miles of trails running through the City and connect many activity centers including Downtown Brea, schools, parks, businesses and neighborhoods.
The Bicycle Corridor Improvement Program is funded using federal Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ) funds and is currently authorized under Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century (MAP – 21). The CMAQ program provides funding through annual appropriations to Orange County to be used for transportation-related projects that reduce congestion and improve air quality. OCTA is responsible for selecting regionally significant projects for Orange County and working with the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) in administering selected projects.
The City of Brea has been a client with Townsend Public Affairs for over seven years. We have established a great working relationship with City Manager, Tim O’Donnell and current Mayor Brett Murdock. We are excited to assist the City with winning these well-deserve funds that will greatly benefit the community.
Congratulations, City of Brea
