The public is invited to attend an open house to be held by the Tyler Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) in an effort to update the 2040 Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP). The 2040 MTP was originally adopted in 2014 and this proposed update involves aligning the short-term and long-term projects with current needs to meet growth in the region.
The open house will be held:
- Thursday, August 24th, 2017 from 5:30 pm to 6:30 pm
Tyler Development Center – 423 West Ferguson Street, Tyler, TX 75702
This is the first of two open houses being held to receive feedback on the MTP amendments. This open house kicks off a 30 day public comment period to be held from August 25, 2017 through September 25, 2017 for updates to the MTP, which will be considered for adoption at the MPO Policy Committee Meeting on September 28, 2017 at 2:00 p.m.
Staff from the Tyler Area MPO will be on hand to answer questions and provide information regarding the MTP updates. The ultimate goal of the open house is to gather public comments on the proposed updates.
