Friends of Eugene may be interested in participating in a transportation survey. The basic info is pasted below. Check out the new coordinated regional transportation planning website, where one can "stroll" from Eugene's transportation plans to Springfield's, to the region's . . . The survey input will be shared by all.
Comments Sought on Eugene's Future Transportation System
The future of Eugene's transportation system is open for comment. And if past transportation planning efforts are a good indicator, there will be lots of comments leading to far-reaching decisions.
Eugene is developing a comprehensive strategy to address the community's transportation needs over the next 20 years. The area's current transportation plan, called TransPlan, was adopted in 2001. The new Eugene Transportation System Plan will look at all transportation modes, including freight, pedestrians and bicyclists, transit, rail networks, airport and personal vehicles, to see what changes could be made to better meet the long-term needs of Eugene's residents, businesses, and visitors.
A survey has been developed to gather public input about the future of local transportation. A link to the survey can be found on the Eugene Transportation System Plan web site at www.EugeneTSP.org<http://www.EugeneTSP.org>.
Public involvement is crucial to the success of this project, to understand the goals of the community for the development of Eugene over the next 20 years. Information gathered by the survey will be used by a number of local agencies, including the cities of Eugene, Springfield and Coburg, Lane Transit District, and the Lane Council of Governments.
