The City’s process for updating the transportation master plan (TMP) is continuing to truck along, and there are two key opportunities for those interested to get engaged.

First, the goals for the plan have been proposed and planners are looking for citizen feedback.  If you have thoughts, please visit click on the links below to share your thoughts.  They are looking for all thoughts and comments by this Friday, 2/11.  From our perspective, we have strongly encouraged planners to explicitly list a goal surrounding social equity.  We have seen far too many examples of the City’s disadvantaged populations essentially unable to move about our great city because they don’t own or have access to an automobile.

Here are the goals as they currently stand:

Please click on each goal above to provide comments. A new window will open to Google Moderator and you can click on ”Submit an idea” or “View Ideas”.  The last link will also bring you to Google Moderator. Please click on that link and vote for your top two goals.

Secondly,  there is a Transportation Master Plan Stakeholder Committee Meeting (Representing the Citizens of Omaha) on Wednesday February 9th, 2011 from 6:30pm to 8:00pm at the Neighborhood Center (115 South 49th Avenue).  If you are free and willing, please consider attending.  Apologies on the short notice.
