Communities in Motion: Why Do You Care? Part III

If you’ve been reading my blog, then you probably have seen my posts from January and April (below) about why people care, or should care, about long-range transportation planning in general and Communities in Motion in particular. 

We have been asking people for their reasons for caring and I have committed to sharing those reasons with you each quarter in my blog. This is my third installment. 

Why people care about Communities in Motion 2040, as submitted by you:
  • To protect the high quality of life that we have.  We’re in good shape…let’s keep it that way.
  • Consequences of not planning can make our valley un-liveable.
  • Because I like to breathe!
  • So kids can walk to school.
  • It is a real life chance to look into a crystal ball.

To share why you think Communities in Motion 2040 is important ― why you care ― email and we’ll post your ideas here. Thanks for caring and sharing!
