City Council considers adoption of the Transportation Master Plan

Posted on November 16, 2020 at 6:27 pm by Clay Curtin

The City Council will consider the draft Transportation Master Plan (TMP) during its special meeting at 5 p.m., Tuesday, November 17, 2020. The draft plan focuses on the City Council’s four goals: 1) safety, 2) sustainability, 3) mobility choice and 4) congestion management.

To create the plan, we evaluated the current transportation system, how to improve it and what would best advance local priorities. We looked at current conditions and issues with different travel modes. Key stakeholders, community organizations and residents provided feedback.

The plan highlights traffic on key roadways, collision hot spots and the need for travel options beyond automobiles.

The City Council appointed an Oversight and Outreach Committee of 11 members of City boards, commissions, other local organizations and residents to review over 190 projects for potential inclusion in the TMP.

The plan includes 53 Tier 1 projects chosen to have the greatest effect to achieve the goals and significantly benefit the community. The plan ranks projects based on specific criteria, outlines implementation strategies for local improvements and identifies local contributions toward regional improvements.
