It's not too late to participate in Long Range Plan development

As the WATS staff continue to make the 2035 Long Range Plan presentation to interested residents all over the county, you can participate from the comfort of your home.

We are still looking for deficiencies that aren't specified in the draft listings. If your deficiency is not listed, please contact us or leave a comment to this post. Also, if there is a project or improvement you would like to see added to the Plan, leave us a comment on the blog and it will be sent to the transportation agency with jurisdiction over the improvement. The improvement will also be added to the list of unfunded improvements which is growing every day. Having your transportation needs addressed in the unfunded list is an important step to help ensure transportation decision makers are aware of your concerns.

LRP Meetings Continue

Over the last two weeks, WATS staff has been toting around map boards and informational brochures across the county, answering questions and taking comments on the Draft 2035 LRP. So far WATS has presented the information to more than 40 people. We've included below a few pictures from some of our meetings.

There is still time to make it out to one of our meetings if you haven't had the chance. Click here for a complete list of meetings.

We are currently working on uploading a video of the presentation given at the beginning of each meeting. Stay tuned to the blog for access to the video presentation when it becomes available.

Comments continue to come in to the WATS office. Feel free to post your thoughts as a comment on the WATS blog. Once the Plan is completed, staff plans to expand the focus of the blog to all transportation issues and news. Help the discussion get started now by posting a comment.

LRP Meetings Begin Today

The first in a series of 17 meetings across Washtenaw County to discuss the Long Range Transportation Plan for Washtenaw County is today at Palmer Commons, 100 Washtenaw Avenue, Ann Arbor on the University of Michigan Campus from 2-4pm.
