The Baltimore Regional Transportation Board (BRTB) is asking for public comments on the proposed goals for Plan It 2035, the next long-range transportation plan for the Baltimore region.

Plan It 2035 will outline how to best allocate funding to meet the region's transportation needs and challenges over the next 25 years. Federal law requires that each metropolitan area's long-range transportation plan be updated every 4 years. Three years have passed since the latest plan - Transportation Outlook 2035 - was approved. Now it's time to take another look at our transportation systems and the challenges the region will face over the next quarter-century.

One of the first steps the BRTB is taking in this process is to develop goals for Plan It 2035. The draft goals are:

1. Improve Transportation System Safety
2. Preserve the Existing Infrastructure
3. Improve Accessibility
4. Increase Mobility
5. Preserve the Environment
6. Improve Transportation System Security
7. Promote Prosperity and Economic Opportunity
8. Foster Inter-jurisdictional Participation and Cooperation

Each draft goal includes strategies for implementation. The goals and strategies may be viewed online.

The draft goals are open for public review and comment through Tuesday, September 14.

A public meeting to answer questions and accept comments will be held on Tuesday, August 31 from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m. at the Baltimore Metropolitan Council (2700 Lighthouse Point East, Suite 310, Baltimore, MD 21224). Comments may be submitted at this public meeting or during the Public Comment Opportunity at the BRTB meeting** on Tuesday, September 28, 2010 at 9:00 am (tentative vote).

The public is also invited to review and comment on the proposed goals for Plan It 2035 in writing. Comments may be submitted to:

The Baltimore Regional Transportation Board
2700 Lighthouse Point East, Suite 310
Baltimore, MD 21224
Fax: 410-732-8248
E-mail: [email protected]
