The Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (CAMPO) recently deployed an online survey to collect input on goals and challenges for the regional transportation
system. This survey kicks off public involvement for the Long-Range Regional Transportation Plan through 2040, or the 2040 Plan for short. CAMPO is looking for input from residents, business owners, commuters, and others with an interest in transportation throughout the region including Bastrop, Burnet, Caldwell, Hays, Travis and Williamson Counties. The survey will be open through August 2013 and is available in English and Spanish.
Every five years CAMPO is required to create a regional transportation plan through the next 25 years. The 2040 Plan will provide solutions to the current and long-term
transportation needs for Central Texas. Population is expected to grow from 1.8 million to 4.1 million in the next 25 years. Planning is needed now to prepare for this growth.
This is a chance for all interested to share priorities for the goals and visions of this Plan as well as transportation priorities. Those that want to spend less time in traffic or
would like to see other options for traveling around the region should get involved with this planning process!
The 2040 Plan will take two years to complete. During this time there will be multiple opportunities for involvement. The online survey marks the kickoff of the project.
CAMPO is also working on a website to initiate conversations and collect input. CAMPO will also hold traditional public meetings in September 2013. For more information on
this process, please visit the CAMPO website. To receive updates on this process, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org and include Updates in the subject line.
