Thank You, Valerie!
The TPA has bittersweet news to share about one of our dedicated staff members. Valerie Neilson, the TPA’s Deputy Director of Multimodal Development, has accepted a position in her hometown of Anchorage, Alaska and her last day with the TPA will be July 30. We are truly grateful for her excellent contributions to the TPA and the people of Palm Beach County for the past 6+ years.

Valerie has played an integral role in the advancement of multimodal transportation throughout Palm Beach County and has demonstrated her investment in our community through engagement in numerous leadership and volunteer opportunities. While we are saddened to lose such a dynamic individual, we are excited to continue the work to advance Complete Streets, Vision Zero safety efforts and implementation of the recommended multimodal investments in each of the TPA’s 561 Plan Transit Corridors.

We are grateful for Valerie's leadership, advancing the TPA’s vision of a safe, efficient and connected multimodal transportation system and we wish her the best in her newest endeavors!
