Dixie Metropolitan Planning Organization
Area planners are seeking public comments on the 2015-2040 Regional Transportation Plan. The RTP forecasts future travel demands and sets goals and objectives for the next 25 years. Public input is needed to determine the importance of well-maintained roads, new road alignments, congestion management, safety, air quality, endangered species preservation, other environmental issues, connectivity, sustainability, multi-modal transportation, etc.

Mobility Management efforts rely on the community and transportation service providers to define transit/transportation needs for specific segments of the population (seniors, persons with disabilities & low-income individuals). Comments generated at the EXPO will allow mobility managers to identify needs and pursue resources to meet those needs.
