A 30-day public comment period for the proposed “Genesee: Our County, Our Future” plan and corresponding Transportation Air Quality Conformity Determination will be held from Monday, March 9, 2020 through Tuesday, April 7, 2020. The “Genesee: Our County, Our Future” plan is a combined plan that serves as the 2045 Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) and the 2020-2024 Consolidated Plan for Genesee County.
Federal transportation legislation requires that each metropolitan planning organization produce an LRTP with a minimum twenty-year planning horizon. The 2045 LRTP includes strategies/actions that lead to the development of an integrated, intermodal transportation system that facilitates safe and efficient movement of people and goods, while addressing current and future transportation demands. The Consolidated Plan is a comprehensive planning document that identifies the county’s overall needs for affordable housing, supportive housing, and community development, along with strategies to address those needs. The Consolidated Plan provides data and analysis used to prioritize community development needs and projects.
The draft “Genesee: Our County, Our Future” plan and supporting materials are available for review on the www.ourfuturegenesee.org website, and at the GCMPC office listed at the end of this notice. The draft plan is also made available for review at your local city, village, or township office. Call individual locations for office hours and addresses.
The public input sessions scheduled for March 24, 26, and 27, have been cancelled due to Coronavirus concerns.
Also, the Public Hearing scheduled for Tuesday, April 7, 2020, from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. will no longer be held in the Willard P.
