Sarasota, FL -- The Sarasota/Manatee Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO), in partnership with the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), invites you to be a part of the 2045 Long Range Transportation Plan TransForum. Participants will learn more about transportation and will have the opportunity to tell us their transportation investment priorities during a planning activity. The TransForum will be held on April 22, 2019, 8:30 – 11:30 AM, at USF Sarasota-Manatee, Selby Auditorium, 8350 N. Tamiami Trail, Sarasota, FL 34243. This event is free and open to the public.

The purpose of the 2045 Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) is to develop future transportation facilities in Sarasota and Manatee Counties. The LRTP must consider the full complement of transportation modes – roads, bicycles, pedestrians, trails, transit, parking, railroads and airports. The plan includes at least twenty years and must be updated every five years. Three keynote speakers were selected to engage you with a thought-provoking program to share their expertise on MPO planning focus areas.

Keynote speakers include Bob McQueen, Sean Sullivan, and Carolyn Griffin. Bob McQueen of Bob McQueen & Associates is highly experienced in smart city planning and technology acquisition advice. Bob will discuss smart city planning challenges and opportunities. The next speaker, Sean Sullivan, Executive Director of the Tampa Bay Regional Council, has spent over 30 years working in the planning, land use, environmental, zoning and public transportation fields. He will discuss the importance of resilience and durability to extreme, especially in coastal communities. The last presenter, Carolyn Griffin, Director of Strategic Impact for United Way Suncoast, will discuss the Sarasota/Manatee region’s ALICE (Asset Limited Income Constrained Employed) reports and the importance of transportation planning for people who “make more than poverty, but less than enough to be self-sufficient.”
