City of Amarillo to hold public meetings on Metropolitan Transportation Plan

City of Amarillo
The Amarillo Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) has scheduled public meetings for the development of the 2020-2045 Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP).

The public meetings are:

Tuesday, May 7: 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., Cole Community Center, 300 16th St., Canyon.

Thursday, May 9: 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., City of Amarillo Central Branch Library, 413 E. 4th Ave.

Thursday, May 16, 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., City of Amarillo Southwest Branch Library, 6801 W. 45th Ave.

The 2020-2045 MTP is a 25-year plan to identify the development of future transportation improvements for the Amarillo metropolitan area. Transportation projects planned within the Amarillo MPO study area will be advanced from the Metropolitan Transportation Plan to the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) as they become eligible. The TIP contains four years of federally-funded and regionally significant non federally-funded projects with cost estimates and funding sources. 

The MTP will continue public meetings until consideration for adoption by the MPO Policy Advisory Committee in October 2019. 

Comments for the 2020-45 Metropolitan Transportation Plan can be sent to the Amarillo Metropolitan Planning Organization.  Comments may be submitted at the public meeting or by mail, fax, or email from May 7 through June 7.

Copies of the current documents are available at the Simms Municipal Building, Room 237, 808 S. Buchanan St. Documents can be accessed from the MPO’s website at www.amarillompo@amarillo.gov.
