Representatives from the North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG), human service agencies, city and county government officials and transportation providers are scheduled to convene at 1:30 p.m. Monday at the Fletcher Warren Civic Center, 5501 US. Highway 69 South. A public hearing concerning Access North Texas is set to follow at 2:30 p.m. that day.
