The Lee MPO's 2040 Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) process is underway and there's another opportunity for citizens to participate--a public workshop on Aug. 25th, starting at 5:00 p.m. in the Estero Rec Center. Here's your chance to share your ideas about future investments in transit, bike/ped facilities, specific road projects, etc. Hope to see you there!
The Lee MPO is updating its transportation plan and wants to know where you think investments should be made to move people and goods. With decreasing transportation funding, our community needs to do more with less, and choosing which projects to fund is a delicate balance. The Lee MPO wants to know which projects you think would make the biggest difference to getting around Lee County, now and in the future. The Lee MPO has tested some proposed solutions for our county’s anticipated needs, but which make the most sense?
Please join the Lee MPO on Tuesday, August 25th at the Estero Recreation Center (9200 Corkscrew Palms Blvd, Estero, FL 33928). The August 25th public workshop will begin at with a brief presentation by staff, followed by an opportunity for citizens to visit various display boards and talk informally with staff about your ideas, concerns, and questions. There will also be a web kiosk to visit the Lee MPO’s interactive online collaboration site, set to be unveiled in mid-August. If you missed the meeting in June, or want to continue to be involved in the process, here’s your chance!
The public workshop will focus on bike and pedestrian needs, transit needs, roadway needs, freight needs, as well as congestion management strategies. Hope to see you there!
