Potential Funding for Pedestrian and Bicycle Improvements

Media Release - 02_thumb.jpg

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.
