Transportation policy plan workshops planned

The Metropolitan Council needs your feedback and input on the public comment drafts for the 2040 Regional Transportation Policy Plan 
The transportation plan emphasizes transportation options by expanding and improving transit service, expanding the MnPASS lane system, and encouraging biking and walking. 

Meet the planners, learn about the plansCity and county planners, officials, and residents are encouraged to attend one of the many meetings taking place around the region starting Tuesday, August 26 in Roseville. After a brief presentation on the transportation plan, attendees can visit six stations to learn more about specific modes. Met Council staff will be on hand to answer questions and discuss the draft plans and any possible implications for local comprehensive plan updates.
Comment forms for the plan will be available and can be filled out at a meeting or mailed in. The Council is accepting comments on the transportation plan until October 1.
Once comments are received, the plans are revised to address comments and a final plan is presented to the Council for approval. Adoption of the transportation plan will occur in December of this year.
