The  County is asking for public input on their LRTP. You can’t complain unless you participate. Put this one on the calendar. Let your voice be heard that people of Miami-Dade need and desire better transportation options and demand that there be no more squandering of funds set aside for transit!

You are invited to attend a Public Meeting to review and comment on the draft Needs Alternative of the Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP). The LRTP is being developed to guide federal, state, and local transportation funding allocations through the Year 2035 and the Needs Alternative is a list of needed improvements to the County’s transportation system that will form the basis for the LRTP.  This comprehensive plan will consist of highway, transit, bicycle, pedestrian, and other types of improvements for maximizing local and regional mobility of people and goods. Solutions will include new, creative, and innovative approaches to current transportation challenges.  The final draft of the LRTP will be presented for approval to the MPO Governing Board in late 2009.
