Clegg appointed CEO of Valley Regional Transit

Idaho Smart Growth Program Director Elaine Clegg has been appointed as CEO of Valley Regional Transit (VRT). She started her new position on March 7, 2023.

The Idaho Smart Growth Board states, “We could not be more thrilled for Elaine and the Treasure Valley that she has been appointed to this important position. At the same time, it will be hard to see her go as she has been an integral part of the organization since its beginning. However, Elaine let us know early that she was applying for this position and the Board has been working since August on a transition plan. We are confident that ISG will move into 2023 coming off a successful summit, with a strong Safe Routes to School program and ready for the future.” Elaine will serve continue to serve as an advisor to ISG. 

“I look forward to this new challenge,” said Clegg. “Although its bittersweet to leave an organization I helped found this new opportunity is so important to the mission of smart growth that I am ecstatic at the chance to focus my full energy on mobility and transit.” The board will work on strategic planning in 2023, watch for opportunities to comment through member surveys sometime in the future.
