ACTPO and the Adams County Office of Planning and Development are currently updating Adams County’s Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP). This federally mandated plan, titled ONWARD2050, envisions the needs and goals of Adams County’s transportation system over the next 30 years. As part of the public engagement component of the plan, a survey has been developed to gather vital feedback from all users of the transportation system…that includes everyone who lives, works, and travels in Adams County.9
The online survey can be accessed through the following link or by clicking the image below: https://arcg.is/eTujK.
A website has also been developed to provide additional information about the LRTP development process. Users can access the survey, provide feedback using the public comment map, learn about the history of Adams County’s transportation system, explore interactive maps, and more through the ONWARD2050 website: https://lrtp-1-adamsgis.hub.arcgis.com/
The attached promotional resources were shared with municipalities and community organizations, and are intended to help “spread the word” about this effort through social media, websites, and newsletters. This information is also available on the county website and will be included in the August 6th edition of the Commissioner’s newsletter, “TGIF”.
The survey will likely run through September, although a definite closing date has not yet been determined. Paper copies of the survey are available at the Adams County Office of Planning and Development.
It is important to recognize that public engagement plays an important role in planning for a safe and efficient transportation system, and by providing feedback, users can help determine the needs and priorities of the system within Adams County.
