Its purpose is to identify strategies and develop a transportation system to facilitate the safe and efficient movement of people and goods.The plan takes a multi-modal approach, including consideration of bicycle, pedestrian, and transit facilities. The activities required to develop this plan began in the spring of 2014 and must be adopted by September 2015.
The TPO has executed a contract with Ghyabi & Associates Inc. to develop the 25-year Long Range Transportation Plan.
Throughout the development of the plan, we will be seeking innovative ways to enhance mobility within the community. This plan is developed with regard to the intents and requirements of the Moving Ahead for Progress (MAP 21) Act, passed in July 2012 and will continue to place an increased emphasis on the preservation of existing assets as well as the operations and management of both highway and transit systems. Further, quality-of-life issues and non-motorized modes of transportation will continue to receive increased attention.
