A. Lee Graham Reporter   Residents seeking the latest updates on area transportation projects are encouraged to attend a public meeting set for Tuesday Aug. 13 at the Fort Worth Business Assistance Center, 1150 South Freeway.   Sponsored by the Regional Transportation Council, the meeting will seek public input in setting future priorities. Those include providing transportation services for older adults, people with disabilities, low-income individuals, and other groups with transportation challenges in the 16-county North Central Texas area.   Also on the meeting agenda is federal transportation and air quality funding allocated to the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Residents are invited to share suggestions as officials reevaluate regional distribution of recent funding.   Other topics set for discussion are transportation improvements and their compliance with federal air quality standards, as well as transportation impacts of the 83rd Texas Legislature.   The North Central Texas Council of Governments conducts such periodic meetings to educate, inform and to seek public comment on various transportation and air quality issues.   Comments are solicited from meeting attendees wishing to speak on the record and any other residents wishing to submit comments in writing up to 30 days after each meeting. Residents may submit online comments at http://www.nctcog.org/trans/outreach/meetings/feedback.asp   lgraham@bizpress.net
