The Lee MPO recently launched its new website for the 2040 Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) to provide the public with an opportunity to keep informed and to participate in the process. Check out the "Frequently asked questions" page for background information. There's also a form online that allows you to share a project idea or suggestion for a transportation. Bookmark this page to keep up to date on opportunities to attend public meetings and workshops, and participate in surveys to share your thoughts and add your voice to the discussion.
Introduction on website:
The Lee County 2040 Transportation Plan is the 25-year vision of how to meet our community’s transportation needs and expectations through 2040. The plan will incorporate all types of travel including driving, biking, walking, public transportation, and freight movement. To identify the projects that will best serve Lee County, the MPO needs a clear understanding of how people and goods move around the county now and how they expect to move in the future. Your ideas and opinions are critical to create a successful plan. Public meetings, workshops, and surveys will give you an opportunity to share your thoughts and add your voice to the discussion of transportation needs in the community.
Please stay in touch with us throughout the LRTP’s development and make your voice heard.
