Every four years, the Commission conducts an interim review and update of the regional land use and transportation plan, in part to address Federal requirements. The 2020 Review and Update assesses implementation to date of VISION 2050, reviews the year 2050 forecasts underlying the plan, and monitors current transportation system performance. The review will also examine whether it remains reasonable for the recommendations in VISION 2050 to be accomplished over the next 30 years, given the implementation of the plan to date and available and anticipated funding. As a result of the review and update process, recommendations may be added or updated, and the financial analysis will be updated to reflect any changes in anticipated funding or expenditures. An outline of the 2020 Review and Update along with draft chapters prepared to date can be reviewed below.
Residents are invited to attend one of seven public meetings across the Region as part of the first of two rounds of public involvement. The public meetings will be held in an open house format, so you can attend any time during the two-hour timeframe. Snacks and refreshments will also be provided. The purpose of this first round of public involvement is to share information with the public about how well the various plan elements are being implemented, and collect feedback about this progress. We also welcome comments on changes, since VISION 2050 was adopted, that we should consider as we update the plan’s recommendations. A second round of public involvement will take place in early spring of 2020, during which time the public will be able to review the draft 2020 Review and Update, including updated financial and equity analyses.
If you cannot attend a public meeting to give us your input, you can complete a survey that replicates questions asked of attendees at the public meetings. We recommend you review the public meeting display boards (available here) prior to completing the survey.
You can also submit comments through December 20, 2019, via the comment box below, or via email, U.S. mail, or fax to the contact information below. Commission staff will review, summarize, and respond to any comments received during the public comment period. We will then consider the comments as we prepare a draft 2020 Review and Update and provide them to the Advisory Committees guiding VISION 2050 for review as they guide the Review and Update.
