WATS Undertaking Long Range Plan Update

Help shape the future of transportation in Washtenaw County by participating in one of our upcoming drop in sessions.  

WATS staff are undertaking an update of the 2040 Long Range Transportation Plan. The Long Range Transportation Plan sets the vision for the transportation system for the next 20 years.

Two public meetings will be held to discuss the Long Range Plan Goals and how we will measure the progress toward those goals.  The meetings will be held on the following dates:

  • Wednesday Nov. 16, 2016 1:30-3:30pm Lobby at 200 N. Main St. Ann Arbor, MI

  • Thursday Nov. 17, 2016 (4-7) near circulation desk Ypsilanti District Library 229 W. Michigan Ave Ypsilanti, MI

Stop by one of these sessions and discuss your vision for the future of our transportation system with our staff.

These November 2016 meetings will focus on a review of the six Long Range Transportation Plan Goals:

  1. Linking Land Use and Transportation

  2. Safety and Security

  3. Access and Mobility

  4. Investing Strategically

  5. Engaging the Public

  6. Protecting and Enhancing the Environment

Additionally, WATS will be discussing their WATS Data Dashboard, a reporting tool for the Long Range Transportation Plan.  These measures can be viewed by going to http://www.miwats.org/data-dashboard/.

Other opportunities to engage in these efforts will take place in February and March.

February 2017 - WATS staff will host discussions with the public to create targets to track the Long Range Transportation Plan.

March 2017 - WATS will continue their Long Range Transportation Plan discussions regarding the policies within the plan.
