2040 Long Range Transportation Plan Update

Dear Community,

Every five years, we conduct a complete update of the Comprehensive Plan and a full update of the Long Range Transportation Plan. We are required to complete the update to the LRTP by the end of 2016 to meet this schedule. The Planning Commission will be meeting regularly throughout the update process to be informed of updates, provide feedback, and participate in topical discussions. Please contact the Planning Department with any questions you may have about the update process.

The LRTP is consistent in its principles and policies with the Transportation chapter of the City-County Comprehensive Plan, but it contains additional detail on finances and project priorities as required by the federal government to maintain our eligibility for federal transportation funds. The LRTP must be adopted by the Lincoln Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO), a separate agency with representation from City, County and State officials. The MPO Officials Committee adopted the 2040 LRTP in December of 2011.

Please contact the Planning Department with any questions you may have about the update process.

Sincerely,

David R. Cary, Lincoln-Lancaster County Planning Director
