How do you envision Kootenai County's transportation infrastructure developing over the next twenty years? Do you want to see wider roadways, more bike lanes, improved transit service, more north-south travel options, or just better roadway maintenance over the long term?
KMPO has been working on the Kootenai County Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP) for several months now and has a draft available for review and comment that includes many of the components above.
This is a big document, and an important one, because it lays out how transportation improvements will be funded over the next 20 years. It includes a list of over $1 billion of projects proposed to be constructed in that time.
We're asking all of you to look the document over and give us your input; do you have priority projects that you think are more important than others included in the project? Are there projects that aren't included in the MTP that should be?
Here's a link to look over the MTP. After you look it over, we're asking you to attend a public meeting tomorrow night to ask questions, submit comments and voice any concerns you may have. The meeting is from 5-7 p.m., Oct. 12 at the Idaho Transportation Department office, 600 W. Prairie Ave. in Coeur d'Alene. The meeting is 'open house' format so you can come anytime between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. and stay as long or as short a time as you'd like.
