Transportation Council Votes
The TMACOG Transportation Council will vote on two fundamental transportation planning programs at its May 6 meeting. Both the FY 2016-2019 Transportation Improvement Program (the TIP), and the “On the Move: 2015-2045 Transportation Long Plan” are up for approval. The meeting is open to the public.
The TIP is the short range plan that schedules and manages federally funded transportation facilities and services in Lucas and Wood counties. It is updated every two years by TMACOG in cooperation with cities and counties and with federal agencies. The draft TIP is posted here.
The 2045 Plan is the long range plan. Like the TIP, it is federally mandated. The long range plan is a prioritized list of projects, initiatives, and policies that will guide transportation investment in the Toledo metropolitan area (Lucas and Wood counties in Ohio, and southern Monroe County in Michigan). Read more about how the 2045 Plan was created and link to the draft plan here.
Both the TIP and the 2045 Plan involved extensive public input and meetings with transportation stakeholders. The Transportation Council meeting is May 6 at 3 p.m. in the TMACOG Boardroom. All TMACOG council meetings are open to the public.
