Three New Draft Chapters Available For Public Comment
The Region 2 Planning Commission is looking for comments, edits and/or questions on three new draft chapters of the 2045 Long Range Transportation Plan. The three draft chapters are listed below and are available here http://www.region2planning.com/long-range-transportation-plan :
1. The Vision, Goals, and Objectives draft chapter is meant to guide the long range transportation planning
process over the life of the plan, and can be used as a benchmark to determine if future projects align
the vision for Jackson.
2. The Environmental Justice draft chapter identifies and addresses any of the disproportionately high
and adverse human health or environmental effects of the transportation program and policies on
minority and low-income populations.
3. The Roadway Congestion, Deficiencies, and Recommended Projects draft chapter contains the
results of the travel demand modeling and forecasting process that was developed through
public input in the fall of 2017.
Please contact Tanya DeOliveira with questions, comments and/or draft edits. Printed copies are available upon request. The public comment period for the three chapters will close on Tuesday, April 10, 2018.
