Scenario Planning Initiative
- Continue to talk to people about their perceptions of the transportation system. To do this we will distribute survey’s, talk to community groups, elected officials and other groups to encourage their feedback.
- We will then use this information to define the scenarios (options).
- Once these scenarios or options have been developed we will check back in with those who have contributed to see what you think before taking it to our board for approval.
- With the help of the WAMPO Scenario Planning Workgroup members, all of the information will be used to create a list of priority scenarios.
- The priority scenarios will be evaluated and the impacts identified.
- The results of the analysis will be shared with stakeholders.
- The priority scenarios will be used to make a final recommendation to the WAMPO Transportation Policy Body as direction for the upcoming update of the *Metropolitan Transportation Plan (due in July of 2020).
*Metropolitan Transportation Plan: WAMPOs long range transportation plan (20 years). This plan sets the direction and transportation priorities of the region. All decisions and choices about Federal transportation spending in the region are based on this document.
