July 15, 2014--The Pioneer Valley Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) has released “Transportation Improvement Projects that are Important to You,” a survey seeking feedback from members of the public. The one-page survey can be found at http://www.pvpc.org/content/survey-transportation-projects-are-important-you and will take less than five minutes to complete. The survey will be available until September 5, 2014.
A total of $400 million in federal dollars is expected to be allocated to transportation improvement projects in the Pioneer Valley region over the next 20 years. Responses to this survey will assist the MPO in developing a new way to evaluate future transportation improvement projects that will use federal funds.
To request a paper copy of the survey, please call the Pioneer Valley Planning Commission at (413) 781-6045. The survey is available in Chinese, English, French, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, and Vietnamese.
