The CCC consists of 13 different downtown citizen’s groups and focuses on supporting community-oriented transportation planning that emphasizes walking, cycling, and transit.  The CCC maintains a website which is an excellent resource for tracking ongoing transportation planning reports and activities in the City and providing a record of ongoing CCC activities.
