Your Input Matters: 2045 Long Range Plan

The Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) looks ahead 25 years at the needs of the MACC area and creates a vision for how we want to travel in the future. Local elected officials make decisions on how to prioritize the spending of federal dollars on roadways, sidewalks, bike lanes, bus service, and more! It’s incredibly important that those leaders know the wants of the community before making big decisions.

That’s where you come in! We’d love for you to take our survey and let us know how you use transportation and where you’d like to see improvements. Click a graphic below to start the survey.
