Metropolitan Transportation Plan
GUIDING OUR TRANSPORTATION FUTURE -- THE 2040 MTP
What will our transportation network look like in the next 20-25 years?  Where will people live?  Where will they work?  What types of transportation improvements will be needed?

Starting in November 2013, the FMPO is updating the Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP), the long-range transportation plan for the area.  The MTP will identify and prioritize future transportation projects out to the year 2040 for all modes to address congestion, increase mobility, and improve connectivity.  The plan outlines several policies and actions to achieve regional goals and to meet the needs of citizens and visitors alike.

HOW YOU CAN GET INVOLVED
Over the next year the MPO will be giving presentations, issuing surveys, holding public meetings, and having information booths at area events in order to gather input from the public on what transportation improvements are needed.  You are encouraged to view the current 2035 MTP (see below) for more information on projects, priorities, actions and strategies, and estimated costs and revenues.





PUBLIC PARTICIPATION

The MPO held a Stakeholder Workshop on February 5 to gather input on the 2040 MTP.  The meeting was attended by transportation advocates representing the entities, transit, health, the disabled, the elderly, the schools, and others.


In late January and early February, staff held public meetings to seek input on transportation needs for the area.  These meetings were held at San Juan College, Sycamore Center, San Juan County Administrative Building, and the Bloomfield Cultural Center.
