Ithaca-Tompkins County Transportation Council Seeks Public Input for Long Range Transportation Plan

Monday, October 29, 2018

The Ithaca-Tompkins County Transportation Council (ITCTC) is updating its Long-Range Transportation Plan for Tompkins County. The plan covers a 20-year time period through 2040. The purpose and primary objective of the transportation plan is to develop a common vision for the future of transportation in Tompkins County.

“Public input is essential for the success of this effort,” stated Fernando de Aragón, director of the ITCTC. “Every five years we update our long range transportation plan. Once again we have the opportunity to help forge a vision for Tompkins County. The plan offers the opportunity to focus on the role of transportation strengthening our local economy, encouraging a healthy lifestyle and promoting equity in our community. Of course, we also recognize the great impact of the transportation sector in issues like energy consumption, air quality and climate change. How we deal with transportation locally can play an important role in addressing these challenges.”

You can view both the current transportation plan and draft materials for proposed update at the ITCTC web site: www.tompkinscountyny.gov/itctc.

Topics covered by the Long-Range Transportation Plan include: pedestrian and bicycle transportation, traffic circulation, maintenance of infrastructure, safety, transit, trail development and more. The first in a series of public meetings to address the Long-Range Transportation Plan will take place on November 7, 12 noon-2:00PM and 6:00-8:00PM at the Tompkins County Public Library in downtown Ithaca. For additional information or to provide your input you may contact the ITCTC at 274-5570, email itctc@tompkins-co.org, go to the agency web site at www.tompkinscountyny.gov/itctc, or visit the ITCTC on Facebook.
