Whereas, York County recognizes the importance of transportation planning as it relates to economic development and quality of life concerns as demonstrated with the adoption of a one-cent sales tax that will generate ninety-nine million dollars for road improvements, the county's successful Infrastructure Bank Board application that resulted in one hundred thirty million dollars for a critical regional connector, the business community's support of the Southern Metro Area Regional Transportation initiative, and a growing recognition of the importance of a regional mass transit system; and
