Virtual Public Participation Meeting to Review the FINAL Draft Active Transportation Plan

The Miami Valley Regional Planning Commission (MVRPC) will hold a virtual Public Participation Meeting regarding the FINAL DRAFT Regional Active Transportation Plan (AT Plan). The AT Plan represents an enhancement of MVRPC’s past regional bicycle transportation planning efforts. The AT Plan adds consideration of walking and transit access to comprehensively address the needs for non-motorized transportation in the Region. The AT Plan is a long-range (20+ year) strategy and policy program developed to guide the effective investment of public funds in multi-modal transportation facilities, prepared by MVRPC in cooperation with local and state officials, and other coordinating agencies.

 
The meeting will take place via Zoom, a video conferencing platform, and will be held as follows:
Thursday, July 28, 2022
