Historically the County has experienced a strong economy, community growth, and a wonderful quality of life. This is in part due to significant investments in our transportation system. During the next 40 to 50 years the County will become more urban, and our population and number of jobs will grow dramatically—which will place additional demands on our transportation system. Thinking about how to set up our transportation system for long-term success is no easy feat. We want your input to help us think about:
Your input in this online open house will help shape a list of potential transportation investments and ideas to study. The County will then evaluate how well the investments and ideas meet anticipated future transportation needs and support community values. The evaluation will highlight costs, effectiveness, and other tradeoffs to help policymakers set transportation priorities and identify further evaluation and refinement needs.
During the next 40 to 50 years, The County and its cities will continue to grow and change as the number of people and jobs increase. To imagine what the County might look like in 40-50 years, the Study Team assumed development consistent with adopted community plans and policies, and gathered input from experts about future trends and technologies and potential shifts in demographics, economics, land use, and travel behavior. Watch the video below and then tell us how you think we might change over the next half century.
How do you think people will get around in the coming decades? What technological, social, or other trends will change the way we travel?
