In accordance with its Public Involvement Policy, the Cabarrus-Rowan Metropolitan Planning Organization (CR MPO), hereby announces the opening of a 30 day public comment period for the Draft Comprehensive Transportation Plan (CTP) Amendment.  The public comment period will be open beginning Monday, August 30, 2021. The Comprehensive Transportation Plan (CTP) is a multi-modal plan developed in accordance with the NCGS 136-66.2. This plan outlines transportation improvement recommendations for highway, bicycle, pedestrian, rail and transit.

The MTP is a listing of all funded transportation projects scheduled for implementation within the CR MPO area over the next 30 years. The Metropolitan TIP must be a subset of the MTP and both are financially constrained. The CRMPO will also hold three citizen virtual information workshops on the development of these long range transportation plans. At the workshop, various elements of the Comprehensive Transportation Plan and 2050 MTP will be presented for review and comment. The CITIZEN VIRTUAL INFORMATION WORKSHOPS will be held via zoom technology on December 1, 2020. The public is invited to drop-in any time during one of three workshops. The workshops will be held at 9:00-10:00 am, 12:30-1:30pm and 5:30-6:30pm .
