OC Supervisor Katrina Foley Comments on Livestreaming Services for OCTA Meetings

ORANGE COUNTY, CALIFORNIA — Orange County Supervisor Katrina Foley commented on yesterday's vote by the Orange County Transportation Authority’s (OCTA) Board of Directors to continue pursuing implementation of livestreaming services for OCTA Board and Committee meetings. This action reaffirms the motion made by Supervisor Foley at the March 11, 2024 OCTA Meeting that directed OCTA staff to begin a formal procurement process for livestreaming services at meetings. 

“Orange County residents deserve transparency from their local governments and agencies - OCTA is no exception,” said Supervisor Foley. “Video live-streaming at our Board meetings will increase transparency and access to OCTA for those who can’t attend meetings in person. Previously, I directed OCTA staff to immediately begin the process of procuring live streaming services for our meetings. I thank my fellow board members for voting to keep OCTA on the right path.”  

“I’m pleased that the OCTA Board approved my motion to immediately implement video live-streaming our Board meetings. This will provide needed transparency, accountability and access to this important agency. I look forward to the staff bringing forward implementation options for the Board to consider,” said Costa Mesa Mayor and OCTA Board Member John Stephens. 

Supervisor Foley released the following statements highlighting the votes by the Board of Directors from the April 8, 2024 meeting:  

LA 28 Olympics Transportation Planning (Item 12): Received an update on transportation planning activities for the 2028 Summer Olympics, which will be hosted in Los Angeles and surrounding communities. This will be a car-free Olympics, with no spectator parking available at events and public transit serving as the primary method for bringing fans to the games. This massive undertaking will require transportation agencies throughout the region to coordinate and further build out systems for seamless transport of people to venues.  

“The LA 28 Olympics serves as a massive opportunity for Orange County,” said Supervisor Foley. “The games serve as a chance to expand our public transit systems and showcase our world class venues, hospitality industry, infrastructure, and athletes. I look forward to working with OCTA and the LA28 Organizing Committee to expand Orange County’s ability to host various events.”
