Lee MPO sends letters to Congress with resolution in support of bike/ped programs in transportation reauthoriziation bill
This week, the Lee MPO Board sent letters to the Chairmen and Ranking Minority of both the House and Senate Transportation Committees as well as to our congressional delegation, transmitting Resolution 11-08, unanimously approved on May 20th. This resolution supports the current Federal Transportation Enhancement, Safe Routes to School and the Recreational Trails Programs and opposes the elimination of these programs in the upcoming Federal Transportation Reauhorization Bill.
As the letter states, "These funding sources continue to help provide funding to the MPO and its local jurisdictions to work towards the goal of building a safe interconnected bicycle and pedestrian network."

Thanks to the MPO Board for their support!
