Mark Your Calendar For Two Public Meetings

Okay folks, mark your calendars because I've got a busy October planned for you. That's because we've had a busy couple months getting together some planning documents.

- This Friday, Oct. 1, the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) 2011-2015 goes out for public review and comment. The TIP is a funding program document that lists federally and non-federally funded transportation improvements proposed by jurisdictions to be undertaken in Kootenai County in the next five years.

There will be a public meeting to provide folks like yourself an opportunity to view and submit comments on the TIP on Wednesday, Oct. 20 at Post Falls City Hall from 4-6 p.m. I'll post more info on that as we get closer to that date.

- We have also recently completed a major update to the Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP). The MTP is a long-term 'blueprint' for transportation improvements over the next twenty years.

A public meeting will be held for that document on Tuesday, Oct. 12 at the Idaho Transportation Department office in Coeur d'Alene from 5-7 p.m. I'll also post more information as we get closer to that date.

Links to both documents will be posted as well as soon as they are available to the public.
