Want to have a say in Tempe’s bike lane, pathway, road and transit planning? Plan on attending the upcoming public meetings on Nov 28th and Dec 1st.
From the city of Tempe:
The city of Tempe will hold a series of open houses for the Tempe Transportation Master Plan (TMP) in order to gather resident feedback related to the needs for mobility/accessibility in Tempe.
The purpose for the Transportation Master Plan is to guide the further development of a citywide multi-modal transportation system integrated with land use plans.
- The TMP provides the policy basis for how transportation funding is spent, and what projects or programs the city focuses on to provide transportation services for its citizens through the year 2040.
- The plan sets these projects and programs within the context of the broader community goals in the General Plan to guide the growth and development of Tempe and enhance quality of life.
Residents are encouraged to attend at least one of the open houses to learn about the plan and provide input.
- Open houses will occur Wednesday, Nov. 28, 6 – 7:30 p.m. at the Tempe Transportation Center in the Don Cassano Community Room, 200 E. Fifth St., 2nd floor and on Saturday, Dec. 1, 9:30 – 11 a.m. at the Tempe History Museum, 809 E. Southern Ave., Tempe.
- The purpose of the open houses is to gather feedback on the character of a balanced street network and options for creating more pedestrian-friendly areas throughout Tempe.
- The public will be introduced to the concept of complete street principles that will be used in the plan. The draft plan will include elements related to streets, pedestrian facilities, bikeways, transit and high-capacity options (freeways and rail).
