Transportation touches all aspects of our communities—economic development, quality of life, social equity, public health, ecological sustainability, and so on. It is important to have a long-term blueprint, so the future of transportation is not left to chance.
The Madison County Council of Governments (MCCOG) has begun an ambitious process to create a long-range transportation plan for the Anderson Metropolitan Planning Area. This plan will act as a guide for the future of transportation facilities and how they function as an integrated metropolitan transportation system. Additionally, 2045 inMotion will consider and plan for transportation factors that support the economic vitality of the metropolitan area.
The process is expected to be completed by June 2020.
Who is involved?
Everyone! 2045 inMotion is a community process that entails an extended community conversation that intentionally engages all stakeholders—residents/citizens, students, neighborhoods, businesses, non-profits, and institutions. Soliciting everyone’s input is critical to the plan and specific groups each play a role in the process.
