Public Input Wanted for Transportation Plan
Abilene area residents are invited to attend the first of two public input meetings to help update the Abilene Metropolitan Planning Organization’s long-range Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP).
The first public meeting will be held August 27th, from 6 to 8 p.m., at the Abilene Main Library (202 Cedar Street). A brief presentation will be held at 6:15 p.m. The public is welcome to come and go, and speak with project representatives throughout the event.
A second public meeting will be held in October, at time and date to be determined.
The MTP is a 25-year transportation plan that is updated every 5 years, and includes planning for roads, transit, walking, and biking. The MTP also examines new technologies, travel strategies, and how to maximize the use of current transportation infrastructure.
