Here’s your chance to shape transportation projects for the next 30 years
The Southwestern Pennsylvania Commission, the regional planning agency for a 10-county area, is soliciting public comment on a draft transportation plan called “SmartMoves for a Changing Region.”
The document identifies roadway, transit and multimodal transportation priorities for southwestern Pennsylvania over the next 25-30 years. Accompanying “SmartMoves for a Changing Region” are documents that outline environmental benefits, environmental burdens and air quality conformity.
Beginning Monday, the draft documents will be available for review online at www.spcregion.org, as well as at the commission’s offices, the Pittsburgh Department of City Planning, county planning departments and many public libraries.
Public meetings where the documents can be reviewed are being held in all 10 counties, including:
- Fayette County — May 9 at the Fayette County Chamber of Commerce, 65 W. Main St., Uniontown.
- Westmoreland County — May 13 at the Westmoreland County Courthouse, Commissioners’ Meeting Room, 2 N. Main St., Greensburg.
- Allegheny County — May 22 at the SPC Conference Center, Two Chatham Center, 112 Washington Place, 4th floor, Pittsburgh.
- Washington County — May 30 at the Courthouse Square Building, Room 103 & 104, 100 W. Beau St., Washington.
- Indiana County — June 4 at Indiana CareerLink, 300 Indian Springs Road, Indiana.
All public meetings will be held from 4:30-6:30 p.m.
