Southwest Region Transportation Plan Update
SWRPC is updating its Long Range Transportation Plan, Southwest Connects, and wants to hear from you! SWRPC has developed several ways to gather input from regional stakeholders including a survey, a series of eight sub-regional “corridor” meetings throughout the 34 town region, and an open invitation to provide input by e-mail or phone by using the contact information below.
Rather than looking at the regional transportation system through the lens of all 34 communities in the planning district, Southwest Connects examines the region from a corridor perspective. A corridor is most often defined as a long, narrow passageway, like those in building, but this concept also applies to roads and transportation. It is useful to think of roadways as corridors in the context of transportation planning because it prompts us to consider the linear nature of the roads and the connection that they facilitate between locations. The eight corridors identified in Southwest Connects are shown in the map below.
In addition to the aforementioned three ways that regional stakeholders can communicate feedback to SWRPC staff, interested parties can sign up to be on an e-mail distribution list to receive feedback on our plan making process, including notices about upcoming meetings, findings from corridor meetings, and draft and final plan announcements.
