Planning The Future Of Transportation In Abilene

Abilene Metropolitan Planning Organization
The study area includes the Cities of Abilene, Impact, and Tye, the communities of Caps, Elmdale, Hamby, and Potosi, some rural areas in Taylor County adjacent to the Abilene city limits.

Every five years transportation officials in Abilene update the Metropolitan Transportation Plan, which sets out project priorities for roads, transit, walking and biking paths.  Federal law requires that the Metropolitan Planning Organization engage the community as it looks to the future of transportation. And the organization will hold two public meetings in the coming weeks-the first will be next Tuesday, August 27that the Main Branch of the Abilene Public Library.  Another public meeting will be scheduled in October.

MPO invites area residents to take the survey if they cannot attend one of the meetings.  Smetana also invites anyone with questions about transportation planning to contact her directly.
