In the Inbox today, a message from the New York Metropolitan Transportation Council:
“Billions of Federal dollars will be spent over the next 25 years to improve the region’s transportation system, and the New York Metropolitan Transportation Council (NYMTC) wants your input into how that money should be spent.
NYMTC’s 2010-2035 Regional Transportation Plan will lay out a long-range framework for improving the region’s transportation system – its roads, bridges, freight and mass transit facilities, and its bicycle and pedestrian networks.
Interactive workshops are being held throughout the region to encourage your comments, ideas and suggestions for your community’s transportation future and to discuss the new Plan, including various trends and issues, NYMTC’s shared goals for the region and its proposed development vision, and the regional socio-economic and demographic forecasts that will form its foundation.
THIS IS YOUR CHANCE TO HELP PLAN TRANSPORTATION IMPROVEMENTS IN YOUR COMMUNITY FOR THE NEXT 25 YEARS. YOUR CONCERNS AND ISSUES MATTER!
Two meetings will be held on the same day at each location to include as many people as possible. The September 18 workshops will be webcast live and archived for viewing at your convenience on http://www.NYMTC.org, where you can also find more information and share your comments, ideas and suggestions through October 31, 2008.”
