The City recently submitted a project for potential Transportation Alternatives funding with the Alamo Area Metropolitan Planning Organization. We are reaching out to ask your help in getting the word out about a meeting the AAMPO is hosting next week.
They are currently looking to fund approximately $15
million in bicycle and pedestrian improvements. They received nine
project proposals totaling over $23.7 million with a $4.7 million overmatch for
$19 million in actual Transportation Alternative funding requests.
To help decide which projects are ultimately funded,
they are hosting a meeting next Wednesday, February 8, 2017, at 6 pm at the VIA
Metro Center Community Room to collect input from the public (see their news
release, below). In addition to the public meeting, residents will also
be able to submit their comments during a month-long online campaign, as noted
in that release.
Any help you can provide in getting the word out is
very much appreciated and community engagement is a factor in how these funds
will be allocated. The AAMPO board will be awarding the funds for these
projects at their June board meeting.
