Seeking Public Input: 2045 Transportation Plan
As planning begins for the next long range transportation plan, TMACOG is soliciting public input from all users of the region’s roads, rails, bus systems, bike trails, and sidewalks.
“To build a transportation system that serves everyone well, we want everyone to contribute to the conversation.”
- Diane Reamer-Evans, TMACOG Transportation Project Manager

TMACOG is required to maintain a long range transportation plan that looks out 20 to 30 years into the future. These regional plans ensure an unbroken focus on the future and they direct decision-making in the short term. The 2015-2045 Plan will set priorities for millions of dollars of federal transportation funds that come to our region.
The “On the Move: 2015-2045 Transportation Plan” will be two years in development. There will be many opportunities for public input and review as the plan is developed. Follow the plan at www.tmacog.org/onthemove.htm.
