Representatives of the Boston Region Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) will meet with the public on Thursday, February 17th, at 7:00 pm in the Hearing Room at the Concord Town House, located at 22 Monument Square in Concord. The purpose of the meeting is to answer questions about local projects and the planning process.
The Boston Region MPO is the regional agency that has oversight of funding for all transportation projects in 101 communities including Acton, Carlisle, Concord, Sudbury, Framingham and many nearby towns. Boston Region MPO representatives will discuss progress on creation of the most recent Long-Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) entitled Journey to 2030, Paths to a Sustainable Region. This is a complex process that affects everyone in the cities and towns under the MPO's jurisdiction.
The meeting is being co-sponsored by the Friends of the Bruce Freeman Rail Trail and the Town of Concords Bruce Freeman Rail Trail Advisory Committee.
Bruce Freeman Rail Trail construction funding in the next 20 years is contingent on being included in the LRTP (as well as in the short-term plan known as the TIP– Transportation Improvement Program).
The public is invited to attend, ask questions, and give feedback as part of this presentation.
More details on the Long Range Transportation Plan can be found on the web at: www.bostonmpo.org/plan.
All are welcome. Light refreshments will be served.
