Attn: Cyclists, Public Transportation Users, Pedestrians, Motorists, and Light-Rail enthusiasts:
The MPO, the Memphis Metropolitan Planning Organization, begins its new long-term transportation planning initiative this month. I know, I know, it sounds like a snooze-fest, but it's really important, especially if you want to give input into how people in the region will get around for the next 25 years.
Imagine 2035 will stress the need to coordinate transportation and land-use planning and show where new growth and development is likely to occur.
“This process will give our community the chance to discuss the ‘what-ifs’ of our metropolitan area, and consider the trade-offs between how our community grows and the transportation decisions needed to support that growth,” says Martha Lott, MPO administrator.
“This is a great chance for the community to not only see what our region might look like 25 years from now, but also take an active part in shaping its future,” adds Brett Roler, IMAGINE 2035 Project Manager.
