[ARCHIVED] Community Invited to Shape Flagstaff's Transportation Future

The Flagstaff Metropolitan Planning Organization (FMPO) invites the community to participate in creating a new regional transportation plan. The Regional Transportation Plan determines priorities, funding, and timing of major transportation investments for the next 20 years. At community workshops on April 9th and 10th, participants will identify and prioritize transportation issues and opportunities. The outcomes of these workshops will guide the Plan’s technical analysis and policy direction.

Who: Flagstaff-area residents
What: Interactive workshops that identify transportation issues and priorities
Where and When:
Wednesday, April 9th, 6:30-8:30 pm, Flagstaff High School, 400 West Elm Avenue
Thursday, April 10th, 6:30-8:30 pm, Sinagua High School, 3950 East Butler Avenue

“Our region is really focusing on recent transportation improvements and unmet needs, said David Wessel, FMPO Manager. “Transportation—driving, walking, biking, and riding the bus—shapes a community’s quality of life and economic sustainability. The future keeps coming at us, and it’s time to rise to the challenge again. That’s why updating the Plan is so important, and it begins with the community through these initial workshops.”

“Innovative community outreach and technical analysis will be hallmarks of this project,” added Wessel.
