This is my eighth 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.
I’d like to extend a special “thanks” to those of you who shared your ideas on the “why I care” poster at the COMPASS open houses in August. You’ll see several of those below.
Why people care about Communities in Motion 2040, as submitted by you:
- 2040 will be here before you know it!
- It’s time for our region to be as great as it can be.
- If you don’t plan it, it will never happen!
- You can text while commuting on the bus.
- The future is coming fast and it sure would be nice to keep the Treasure Valley a wonderful place to live – maybe even better than it is now (air quality, livability for seniors, etc.)
- If people don’t start walking, they’ll be too fat to get in their cars!
- Let’s preserve trees, farms, and open space to reduce air pollution.
- We should all care!
To share why you think Communities in Motion 2040 is important and why people should get involved ― why you care ― email firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll post your ideas here. The next installment will be posted the beginning of January.
