The Eugene, Springfield and Coburg metropolitan areas are planning transportation improvements and projects for the next four years (2015-2018), this is referred to as the Metropolitan Transportation Improvement Program (MTIP). The MTIP sets forth the MPO’s investment priorities for transit and transit-related improvements, highways and roadways, bicycle and pedestrian, and other surface transportation improvements. This is a coordinated planning effort to ensure that transportation investments are consistent with the vision and priorities for the broader system.
The MTIP is accompanied by an air quality analysis that ensures that all transportation activities in the MTIP meet air quality standards.
A public comment period on the draft MTIP and air quality analysis is now open. Comments received before the public comment period ends on September 28th, 2014, will be sent to decision makers to consider as part of the approval process.
The Metropolitan Policy Committee is the policy board who are the decision makers for the Metropolitan Planning Organization. The details of this meeting are posted on-line at http://www.lcog.org/
