Can't make it? Your can submit your input anytime through June 27.

How is my input used?

Results from this public input period will be shared with the MPO's Transportation Policy Board, Technical Advisory Committee and Bicycle and Pedestrian Mobility Advisory Committees.

The Transportation Policy Board ultimately selects the projects for funding. Public input is one of the considerations during project selection. Others include project technical scores, agency priority and project readiness.

Selected projects will be added to the MPO's short-range transportation plan (TIP), now under development for fiscal years 2023 through 2026.

Public input is also used to develop the MPO's long-range transportation plan (MTP). The transportation visions you submit will help inform the vision, goals and values for the region's transportation system being planned today out to 2050.

The MPO strives to involve everyone in transportation planning. When you choose to provide it, data like zip code, age, ethnicity and gender helps us understand if we are reaching a representative sample of people who call the Alamo Area home.
