CTRMA Discusses Future Of Transport In Williamson County

Most transportation discussions in Austin focus only the city and ignore the suburban communities around Austin. The Williamson County Growth Summit provides an opportunity for transit challenges to be discussed based on the needs of suburban communities in the region. The panel is comprised of prominent Texans in the transportation industry. There is Mike Heiligenstein, who is the director of Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority, RideScout founder Joseph Kopser, Jared Ficklin, a designer from ArgoDesigns and Leandre Johns the Texas External Affairs Director for Uber. Participants of the event, which was held in Sheraton Georgetown Hotel, discussed technology and how it’s transforming transportation globally and in the Austin region.

Heiligenstein noted that Austin was in urgent need of investment in upgrading transportation capacity and making the roads smarter. He also pointed out that upcoming technology such as ridesharing apps and driverless cars would change transport infrastructure. He said most of these changes would have to be in suburbs such as Williamson County, which are experiencing unprecedented growth in mobility demands. He praised Williamson County for doing an excellent job in building infrastructure that was adaptable and efficient.

Alan McGraw Mayor for Round Rock emphasized that land use and building codes would need to be flexible to accommodate transit needs for future generations. He observed that autonomous vehicles would still need roads and parking spaces. He came up with an interesting idea whereby future parking spaces would only need to be one inch taller than a car. Additionally, electric cars would need charging stations within parking spaces to boost efficiency.

The CTRMA is a state level independent government agency that was created in 2002. The main aim of the agency is to improve the transportation systems in Travis and Williamson counties. CTRMA is tasked with implementing inventive transport solutions that promote economic vitality and reduce congestion. The Mobility Authority is run by a board of directors that has seven members. The Governor of Texas appoints the chairman and the two counties nominate three members each. CTRMA has a small staff and uses specialized private contractors for different projects.

Mike Heiligenstein is the current chairman of the CTRMA. He has served with the authority since its inception and has lead its first project, 183A in Williamson County. He also supervised the opening of the 290 Toll Expressway project. Prior to his appointment as chairman of CTRMA he served as public official in Williamson County for 23 years. In addition to his role at CTRMA he serves on the Board of The Texas Transportation Institute.

Richard Blair’s Wealth Solutions for Austinites

According to Bright Stone, Richard Blair Wealth Solutions has made it his firm’s mission to assist clients in expanding their earning potential and manage their assets. Wealth Solutions has become a staple in Austin’s financial community, boasting a reputation as a trusted Registered Investment Advisory (RIA) firm that offers structure to their clients’ lives in ways that they can adapt to believably.

Understanding the need for planning in order t meet financial goals, Blair has made it a point to connect with Austinites with services to manage the wealth they have to ensure that it lasts the duration of their retirement.

But in order for clients to heed advice, and advisors to work with their needs, Blair has directed his firm to acclimatize to their needs rather than the other way around. This is the basis of Blair’s Three Pillar approach to financial planning.

The fist pillar that must be past is understanding the client’s current financial standing. With a sense of where they stand, advisors with Wealth Solutions can extrapolate reasonable financial goals, their ability to tolerate risks in the various markets, and how to utilize their strengths to ensure success.

With an improved understanding of who their client is and their relationship to wealth, advisors can better work in their interest.

The second pillar concerns strategy. With the investment profile of the client compiled, advisors can better make use of their liquidity and apply it to those aforementioned goals.

Blair’s approach is to take the client’s assets and put them to work for in markets that are suitable for those current goals. This is done with the intention of mitigating unnecessary risk by avoiding markets don’t align with the client’s strengths.

The final pillar incorporates insurance. Blair believes that protecting one’s long-term care can better prepare them to enjoy the returns on their investments during retirement, just as life insurance and annuities makes it easier on loved ones to care for them in the event of their passing.

About Richard Blair:

Raised in a family dedicated to education, Richard Blair’s career has been centered around educating people bout the complex nature of investing and the dynamic application of liquidity in their own best interest.

Following in the footsteps of his mother, Blair has spent more than 20 years educating people on how to better prepare themselves for the future.

The Expenses Of Buying A Car

One thing that is very admirable and painful at the same time is owning a new car. As one would see, buying a car is very expensive. For one thing, the monthly payments are steep. Also, there are plenty of other expenses that come with owning a car. One must pay for registration and insurance. When this adds up, one would consider himself fortunate to be able to afford a car. However, there are other problems that could come up. Often times, a car would breakdown. This would result in potentially costly repairs. As a result, the person winds up in a lot of financial pain.

 

Fortunately, there are other options for car payments. People can have their car refinanced in order to make it easier to pay. One just have to type “slash my payments” on the search engines then they will be taken to lists of refinance loan providers. One refinancing service is Ignition Financial. They provide refinancing services for vehicles. Therefore, people will be able to pay lower prices for their vehicles. This will free up their finances for other expenses.

 

The ability to refinance a vehicle is of great convenience for people. It could ease the pressure off of them so that they could focus on ways that they can improve their financial situation. Also, refinancing a vehicle leaves a lot of room for unforeseen circumstances like car accidents that cause a lot of damages and injuries. This also makes it easier for people to pay off their vehicle once they get caught up with their other necessities.

 

While one could plan better for buying a car, the truth is that life is unpredictable. People can be suddenly faced with emergencies that could not only last a long time, but eat up all of their finances. This is one of the reasons that it is important to be able to refinance a vehicle. People have different circumstances that make it almost impossible to get caught up with their expenses. This is why it is important to have a plan for auto refinancing. Fortunately, Ignition financial provides the assistance for its clients.

Covers.Com: They Are Ready For The Big Game

When one steps back and thinks about it, this has been one of the most amazing and fun seasons to watch in NFL history. I’m not saying that to be extreme or over the top. It is simply a matter of fact. The two teams that made the Super Bowl last year in Super Bowl 50, the Carolina Panthers and the Denver Broncos, are not even going to make the playoffs this year, which is hard to believe. As far as the NFC, the Panthers and the Cardinals, two teams that made the NFC championship game are also not going to make it to the playoffs.

Right now, it is week 17, the playoffs, the Pro Bowl, and then Super Bowl 51. If there is one website that is ready for the Super Bowl all of the time, it is Covers.com. They know that throughout the season, things can change and plans can go haywire. For example, after five weeks, the Vikings were 5-0 and looked well on their way to winning the NFC north. Now, it is coming down to the Packers and Lions, and that is NFL odds at its finest. When it comes to football odds, people need Covers.com to make sure they are making the smart and safe bet.

Of course, there is a certain level of risk involved, but when someone uses Covers.com, they will have it figured out and it will be the right kind of risk, without question. Again, going back to Super Bowl odds, they make it to where each and every part of the game is worth watching and it should not be turned off. There are bets placed on just about every thing that one could think of, which is why their website gets such heavy traffic during that time and they have numerous columns covering the game.

For football odds and NFL odds, Covers.com is the A+ source for information. It is often said that you can’t buy experience and they have the experience and the experts that have covered a number of Super Bowls. Because of this, they know everything there is to know about the game and what team has a great chance of coming out on top. They can see things that the other so called experts can’t see. It takes a special kind of expert to be on Covers.com, as they know their bettors and fans rely on them.
