The public is invited to an open house Tuesday, May 3 on the community's future transportation needs through the year 2040. The Lincoln Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) is hosting the meeting on the City-County Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) from 5 to 7 p.m. at Everett Elementary School, 1123 "C" Street.
The LRTP is a major component of the Lincoln-Lancaster County Comprehensive Plan, which was last updated in 2011. The open house is part of a five-year update to the LRTP to refresh the planning priorities and project list. At the open house, the public will have the opportunity to review the current transportation needs, comment on the major transportation topics and provide input on project priorities to be included in the LRTP.
Information gathered from the open house will be used to develop recommendations to forward to the City-County Planning Commission and to draft the final planning document. The draft of the updated LRTP is expected to be completed and available for public review during the fall of 2016.

Those who are unable to attend the open house can share their comments by contacting Mike Brienzo at the MPO at 402-441-6369 or firstname.lastname@example.org. The MPO office is open from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. weekdays in the City-County Planning Department, Suite 213, County-City Building, 555 S. 10th St.
