MOVE 2040 Amendment

Public Comment is now being accepted for Amendment #6 of the MOVE 2040 Long Range Metropolitan Transportation Plan.  

MOVE 2040 is WAMPOs Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP). This plan lays out long-range strategies for the next twenty-five years. These strategies are intended to lead to the development of an integrated system that moves people and goods in the WAMPO region.
 
Before the WAMPO Transportation Policy Body takes action on the proposed amendments on August 13, 2019, we would like you to give the public an opportunity to review the information and tell us what they think.  

Important Note:  Consideration of this amendment by the WAMPO Transportation Advisory Committee has been delayed until July 22 and consideration by the Transportation Policy Body delayed until August 13.  Please note that due to funding source and planning process constraints, the review and comment period for this amendment overlaps with the comment period for Transportation Improvement Plan Amendment #3, which covers some of the same projects.  

Please contact Chris Upchurch at cupchurch@wichita.gov or call 316-268-4457 with any questions or comments related to this proposed amendment.  The last day to submit public comment is Tuesday, August 13, 2019 by 2:00 PM .
