Placer vs. NLTRA: Same Structure, Different Driver

I read with interest your article. It is, of course, discouraging to find that Placer County may be taking away control of local input on local infrastructure projects that impact us directly. But the whole thing was confusing.

I was struck by how similar the structures really are. The only real difference appears to be the hat of the administrator overseeing the committee (Placer County instead of NLTRA), and who chooses the committee members.

Doesn’t that mean that the present structure is actually what everyone thinks will work and the real bone of contention is who gets to play and who chooses them?
