This is my tenth 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.
But, before I get to this quarter’s list, I want to remind you that the draft Communities in Motion 2040 plan is open for public comment through Sunday, April 27, 2014. Please show you care by taking a few minutes to review the materials and submit your comments. Learn more at www.compassidaho.org/prodserv/cim2040.htm#PublicParticipation.
Below is the latest list of why people care about Communities in Motion 2040, as submitted by you:
- Where would we be if we didn’t do this? COMPASS is a leadership/planning group that does a lot of good.
- Transportation is taken for granted – it’s there because people before us cared, so we should care now for the next generation.
- Transportation influences the economy, quality of life, and how communities look.
- It’s all about the money…
- Transportation supports population and economic growth.
- We need to anticipate future needs – we need to make the best use of future scarce resources.
- Transportation is a driving force behind the economy and quality of life.
- We need to plan so people can keep living here.
