Public Outreach 11/2/16 & 11/3/16
The first round of public meetings and workshops for the 2045 RTP were held in early November and provided stakeholders with analysis on existing conditions in the region. The plan will continue to leverage the vision for the region that was established in the previous plan, but the new existing conditions information will be used to evaluate whether future investment scenarios are properly addressing the goals of the plan. The new plan will also continue to evaluate projects in a context sensitive manner that aligns evaluation of projects with their intended purpose based on three categories:
- Within Community (Goal: Build and maintain safe and healthy communities)
- Community to Region (Goal: Connect communities in the region by providing multimodal travel options to activity and economic centers)
- Region to Region (Goal: Grow economic opportunity through strategic investment in critical regional infrastructure)
