MPO staff are looking forward to hosting an interactive station at the upcoming charrette #iSeeManatee next Friday, April 17 at Dolphin Aviation (8191 N. Tamiami Trail, Sarasota FL) from 6pm-9pm. We will have maps of the regional transportation network, interactive idea sharing related to future mobility in our area, and will be available to answer any questions you might have about our regional transportation needs. Whether your vision for future mobility includes regional bicycle & golf cart trails, expanded transit service, a more pedestrian friendly environment, or super-highways with automated vehicles, we want to hear from you!
This event is being organized by the Manatee County Neighborhood Services Department and is a great opportunity for students and younger residents in Sarasota and Manatee Counties to come out and share their ideas and vision for the Southwest Manatee area which includes North Tamiami Trail, USF Sarasota-Manatee, Ringling School of Art & Design, New College of Florida, State College of Florida, and the Bayshore & Whitfield neighborhoods in Manatee County. For more information, please view the event flyer here.
Hope to see you there!
By the way, if you are unable to attend on April 17, but you would like to contribute your ideas to the MPO's Strategic Mobility Plan, please register with us at www.strategicmobilityplan.com to share your thoughts on our regional transportation plan for Sarasota & Manatee Counties.
