Citizens Invited to Take Survey of Transportation Needs

lex planning 300LEXINGTON, Ky. (8/23/13) – Regional residents, workers and visitors are invited to complete a survey that will provide insight into how people view our transportation system today and what is desired of transportation in the future.
 
The direct link is https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/LexAreaTransSurvey. It is also available at www.LexAreaMPO.org and www.MoveItPeople.com.
 
The survey is being conducted by the Lexington Area Metropolitan Planning Organization, the transportation-planning agency for Fayette and Jessamine counties, the two-county focus area of the plan.
 
The survey will provide insight to the MPO on the public’s transportation desires, concerns and priorities as they develop the region’s long-range 2040 Metropolitan Transportation Plan. Updated every five years, the Metropolitan Transportation Plan sets forth transportation policy and investment strategies for the MPO region over the next 25 years and is the mechanism for prioritizing and allocating transportation funds. The plan will be adopted by the MPO mid-2014.
 
The MPO consists of representatives from local, state and federal governments, transit agencies, transportation providers and other stakeholders. The MPOs work to ensure that expenditures on transportation projects and programs are based on public input, regional goals and priorities.
 
A summary of survey results, draft reports and a draft plan will be posted to the MPO website as the plan progresses. Additional opportunities for public input will occur prior to plan adoption. Citizens who wish to be notified of these opportunities are encouraged to contact the Metropolitan Planning Organization at www.lexareampo.org or 859-258-3605.
