Presenting a $7.7 Billion Preview
AMATS Will Present Transportation Outlook 2045 April 29
If you’re interested in what the future holds for transportation in the Greater Akron area, then mark Thursday, April 29 on your calendar. That’s the day that AMATS will present the area’s Draft Transportation Outlook 2045 in a virtual public meeting.
Transportation Outlook 2045 is the Greater Akron area’s long-range plan that identifies regional transportation needs and presents recommendations for highway, public transportation, bike and pedestrian projects that should be pursued over the next 24 years. The new plan emphasizes preservation of the area’s existing transportation system rather than costly expansions. The plan also promotes sound regional land use strategies and development, pursues the integration of all transportation modes within the system, and increases mobility opportunities for all persons.
As the Greater Akron area’s federally designated metropolitan planning organization, AMATS prepares and updates the region’s long-range transportation plan every four years. Public insight is vital for the agency to prepare a vision that meets future challenges and needs.
The Draft Transportation Outlook 2045 is available for viewing by clicking here. The draft plan will be available for public comment until May 12 on our agency web site and the AMATS Twitter and Facebook pages – @AMATSPlanning. The April 29 virtual meeting of the AMATS Citizens Involvement Committee will present the draft plan at 6:30 p.m. If you want to join this meeting, please visit amatsplanning.org/cic-webinar/ or call 330-375-2436 for more information.
