Communities in Motion: Why Do You Care? Part V

This is my fifth installment in the series of blogs 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 – Treasure Valley residents, such as you  –  this question. I have committed to sharing those reasons with you each quarter in my blog. Below is the newest list.  
Why people care about Communities in Motion 2040, as submitted by you:

-          I work to live; not work to be stuck in traffic.

-          The Mayans were wrong!  It looks like 2040 really will come!

-          Will it help me lose weight?  (Note: It actually might! One of the goals is to encourage walking and biking.)

-          I’d rather be fishin’ (…than sitting in traffic).

-          People always complain that no one is planning for the future…COMPASS is!

To share why you think Communities in Motion 2040 is important and why people should get involved ― why you care ― email and we’ll post your ideas here. The next installment will be posted the beginning of April.

Also – just a reminder that we’re currently soliciting comment on some of the key issues in the plan. Visit to learn more and submit your comments. Comments will be accepted through noon, Tuesday, January 15, 2013.
