LEXINGTON, Ky. — The Lexington Area Metropolitan Planning Organization, the federally designated transportation planning agency for Fayette and Jessamine Counties, will host a public listening session Tuesday, June 25 from 6 to 7 p.m. to provide the public with an opportunity to talk directly with officials from the Federal Highway Administration and the Federal Transit Administration and share their thoughts on the MPO’s transportation planning process.
The MPO is tasked by Congress and the FHWA with conducting a federally-mandated transportation planning process for our urbanized area. The MPO develops the long and short-range transportation plans for the MPO region in cooperation with several partners including federal, state and local governments, elected officials, transit agencies, stakeholders and the public.
Every four years, the FHWA and FTA reviews the MPO’s transportation planning process to determine if it is meeting federal transportation planning requirements. As part of the review process, they are seeking public feedback.
The meeting will be held at the Lexington Public Library’s Tates Creek Branch at 3628 Walden Dr. in Lexington
More information about the MPO and the status of transportation plans and projects in the region are available at lexareampo.org/.
