Ozarks Transportation Organization plans public input meetings

Posted online
The Ozarks Transportation Organization's Long Range Transportation Plan is up for review, and the group has scheduled a series of public input meetings to give area residents a chance to see the plan and voice their opinions.

The Long Range Transportation Plan covers parts of Greene and Christian counties, including Battlefield, Nixa, Ozark, Republic, Springfield, Strafford and Willard, and forecasts area transportation needs for the next 25 years.

The new plan, dubbed Journey 2035, includes multiple modes of transportation, including roads, bicycles, rail, air, mass transit, freight and pedestrian travel, according to an OTO news release.

A plan is required for federal funding; in order for a project to receive federal transportation money, it must be in the Long Range Transportation Plan, the release said.

OTO has scheduled six meetings to give residents a chance to see the plan and voice their input:

• June 1, 4:30–6:30, at Strafford City Hall, 126 S. Washington;

• June 4, 4:30–6:30, at Springfield Downtown Farmer’s Market, Park Central East;

• June 8, 4:30–6:30, at Ozark Community Center, 1530 W. Jackson, River Room;

• June 10, 4:30–6:30, at Republic High School, 1 Tiger Drive;

• June 15, 4:30–6:30, at Nixa City Hall, 715 W. Mount Vernon, and;

• June 17, 4:15–6:15, at Willard Community Center, 220 W. Jackson.

More information about the proposed plan is available at the OTO Web site.[[In-content Ad]]
