Last Call: MPO survey ends August 31

time-running-out Time for Action

There is still time for members of the public to take the Transform Tomorrow survey. This is the community’s chance to tell the Sarasota/Manatee Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) how they can improve transportation. Does the region need more cars? bike lanes? trails? buses? Individuals can participate in the survey and transform tomorrow’s transportation here, www.mympo.org/transformtomorrow. The survey closes on August 31.

There has been a tremendous response to the 2045 Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) “Transform Tomorrow” General Survey, with over 1,000 surveys received to date. The responses from this survey will help the Sarasota/Manatee MPO understand the community’s transportation concerns, needs, and desires. It will also help the MPO understand attitudes toward potential solutions, and how those solutions should be prioritized. 

“We are receiving a lot of positive feedback from the survey and comments received from the Transform Tomorrow webpage on our website,” says David Hutchinson, MPO Executive Director. “We value citizen input. It helps us decide how to invest your tax dollars.” 

The purpose of the 2045 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. The 2045 LRTP must include robust public involvement to shape the final plan.
