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.

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 Park Community Center, San Juan County Administrative Building, and the Bloomfield Cultural Center.

In August and September, staff undertook more public outreach through stakeholder meeting groups, public open houses, an online survey mapping tool, and a paper version of the survey. The documents summarizing the results and recommendations from this public outreach are available below:

 

NEXT STEPS TO PLAN DEVELOPMENT

The MPO will use the input received to update the individual plan elements, working toward the goal of completing the plan update in April 2015. Staff will present the findings of public outreach at the following public meetings: 

  • MPO Technical Committee meeting on November 20, 2014 at 10:00 a.m. at San Juan County Administration Building, 100 S. Oliver in Aztec. 
  • Special MPO Policy Committee meeting on December 1, 2014 at 1:30 p.m. at MPO Offices, 100 W. Broadway, 2nd Floor, in Farmington. 

Chapter drafts of the 2040 MTP elements will be reviewed in subsequent meetings of the Policy and Technical Committees beginning in January 2015. Additionally, staff will be scheduling public open house meetings in January or early February to continue public input and review as the plan progresses.
