Last chance to take MPO survey: Which bike/ped/transit/road projects should be prioritized for funding?

 The Lee MPO is in the midst of developing the county's transportation plan for the next 25 years.  Throughout the 2-year process, there have been multiple opportunities for public input--from public workshops to online surveys.  Take a few minutes to fill out this survey, which gives you an opportunity to "vote" on specific bike/ped/transit/road projects that are being considered.  We also encourage you to share this survey broadly with your networks and friends.  For the future of Lee County, it's important that your voices are heard.  Thanks!

 Listen to WGCU Gulf Coast Live  Sept. 23rd radio interview with MPO's Don Scott about the 2040 LRTP and importance of public participation.  Still time to do this survey, but hurry!
Projects built in our future begin with conversations today!

Take the survey and tell us what is important to you by visiting  

Lee County, Fla. – In the next 25 years, Lee County’s population and jobs are expected to grow by 70 percent. In fact, more than a million people will live here by 2040. To address the transportation needs of our growing communities, the Lee County Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) is currently updating its transportation plan and wants to know which projects you think would make the biggest difference to getting around Lee County, now and in the future.

To do this, different bike, pedestrian, transit, and roadway projects are presented in an online survey. The MPO is asking the public to share their ideas on which projects should be prioritized for future transportation investments.  The survey only takes a few minutes to complete and is available by visiting through September 2015. [will still be taking input the first week of October.]

The Lee MPO Board will be making decisions for our transportation future, but not without your help. Let your thoughts and choices be heard! 

Visit and tell the Lee MPO which projects are most important to you.
