Many of you have participated in previous MPO planning studies, or expressed an interest in hearing about opportunities to weigh in on the 2035 Regional Transportation Plan.
We’ve been out and about, all over the region, presenting on the major policy initiatives of the draft plan throughout most of 2010. Time flies when you’re having fun, and the plan is now scheduled for adoption at our December 15th Executive Board meeting– so the last remaining opportunities for public review and comment are upon us!
Everyone living and working in Middle Tennessee is invited to learn about what’s in the Plan, and express support or opposition to policy changes therein. Join us tomorrow evening in Lebanon with Wilson County‘s mayors, or find out about a Community Conversation in our neck of the woods! Let us know you’re coming by RSVP’ing on facebook.
