The North Florida TPO will host a series of public meetings over the next two weeks to get input on transportation needs for the next 20-25 years. Transportation projects must be included in the Long Range Transportation Plan to receive federal funding.

The meetings will feature maps and lists of potential project needs identified during the last long range plan update, as well as numerous studies that included public input.  The potential projects will be displayed at five stations:  Bicycle and Pedestrian; Transit; Freight; Road Capacity; Safety and TSM&O (Transportation System Management & Operations).  You will have the opportunity to “vote” for how much to invest in these categories by allocating 10 tokens among the stations.  The TPO is also seeking comments on specific projects and recommendations for additional projects to consider.
