MDOT to Host Public Meetings on Tranportation Plan Draft - In Traverse City on August 15th

Which roadmap should the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) follow to address our state’s transportation needs through 2035? MDOT seeks your input to help revise its long-range plan, “MI Transportation Plan: Moving Michigan Forward.” Put yourself behind the wheel and join us for one or more of the upcoming public meetings to discuss the draft document. The 5 to 7 p.m. open houses will feature brief presentations at 5:15 p.m. and 6:15 p.m.. The same information will be presented at each location.

The draft plan will be available at beginning Aug. 1, 2012. MDOT will seek public comments on the plan through Sept. 1. Please call 517-373-9534 for further information. With seven days advance notice, MDOT can make meeting materials available in alternative formats like large print, audio tape, signing and language translation.

In northwest lower Michigan:

Location: Traverse City Michigan Works! Service Center, Wednesday, August 15, 5pm-7pm.

Other public meeting locations and dates outside our region are available, see flier for more information.


Our Township greatly benefits from Network Northwest's experience, depth of knowledge and understanding. Because they work with so many diverse communities in our ten-county region they understand the local land-use issues and are already working on solutions by the time we realize we need some help.
