The Sarasota/Manatee Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) recently unveiled the region’s transportation plan to elected officials and the general public at its “Drive The Future: Community TransForum” event. The “Drive The Future” campaign aims to finalize the community vision, increase awareness, and encourage positive support among stakeholders for the region’s long-term transportation needs. The MPO is inviting the community to take a survey and weigh in on the plan here; it's open through March 20.
Community members are also encouraged to share transportation-related items they would like to see addressed in their area—relating to roads, bicycles, sidewalks, trails, transit, parking, railroads and airports—on MPO’s Facebook, Instagram or Twitter pages using the hashtags #SolutionsAdvocate and #SaraManaMPO. All community input will be considered as the region’s long-term plan takes shape and transportation facilities are developed.
