Transportation funding streams are complex. Fortunately, thanks to great work by Wendy Sanford and the team at the City of Fairfax, there is a visual way to begin to get your arms around the options. Highlighted in a recent blog post on Emerging Local Government Leaders (www.elgl.org) the City of Fairfax wheel of funding is now available to share beyond the 6.3 square miles of our great City.

This visualization has already been very helpful in communicating the rhythm of the transportation funding application cycle in multiple community meetings. It has been (at least in one Councilmember’s opinion) the highlight of this session when it comes to innovative communication tools.

I look forward to continuing to see how this tool can be used to communicate the multiple ways the City is bringing our tax dollars back to our community.
