Last opportunity for public comment on Lee MPO's 2040 Transportation Plan

The Lee MPO's 2040 Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) process is nearing completion and the last opportunity for public comment before its adoption is at the Dec. 18th MPO Board meeting.  Many citizens have participated in the public outreach efforts over the past year, and here's your chance to comment on how the draft 2040 Plan reflects your input and vision for the County's future. BikeWalkLee has been an active participant in the Plan development over the past several years, and will share our views on the draft 2040 Plan in an upcoming blog.  For background on the process and our previous comments, see the BikeWalkLee blog posts at the end of this post. 

 Intro from Lee MPO 2040 Transportation Plan webpage:

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.
If you have a comment or question regarding the Draft 2040 Transportation Plan, please contact Johnny Limbaugh at the Lee County MPO at (239) 244-2220 or
