Boulder County Transportation kicking off Transportation Master Plan (TMP) Update with survey
Public meetings also scheduled as part of initial public process
Boulder, County, Colo. - Boulder County Transportation is updating the existing Transportation Master Plan (TMP) and we’d like the public’s assistance with the process. The update will only be successful with from people who live, work, and play in Boulder County. Please help inform the process by completing an online survey by Sunday, Oct. 21 in order for staff to understand what you think is working well and what Boulder County should do to improve the transportation system in the future. A few minutes of your time will provide valuable insight and will help jumpstart the update.
The primary purpose of this effort is to update the original TMP, adopted in 2012, to include new or trending transportation-related technology, changes in demographics, land use, travel patterns, opportunities for infrastructure and economic resiliency, and identify funding challenges and opportunities.
In addition to the survey, Boulder County Transportation will also host a series of public meetings where interested community members can visit with and provide invaluable input to staff on the focus areas mentioned above. Attendees can also complete the survey at the event.
