Citizen Input To Identify Transportation Issues – The City’s Transportation Department is requesting public input from residents to discuss transportation concerns as part of the City’s Strategic Mobility Plan outreach.  On Nov. 9-12, 2009, neighborhood outreach meetings will be held around the city at the locations listed below.  Transportation engineers will be available between 5:30 – 6:30 p.m.  to take comments about specific transportation concerns for roads, transit, rails, sidewalks, bicycles or trails.

Large-scale maps of the city will be set up for residents to identify specific transportation gaps or traffic bottlenecks such as missing highway interchanges, left-hand turn lanes, trails or bicycle lanes, sidewalks, car/vanpooling options and rail transit.  Comments about specific transportation elements will help the City develop a master list of projects that should be addressed, immediately or longer-term in a bond election.

The Strategic Mobility Plan outreach meetings are being conducted at the same locations as the Comprehensive Plan community forums at the following times and places:

Nov. 9, 2009 Meetings

– Westwood High School, 12400 Mellow Meadow Drive (6 p.m. — Transportation comments)

– Baty Elementary School, 2101 Faro Drive (6 p.m. — Transportation comments)
