HORIZON2040- Thank you For Participating!
Thank you everyone who participated in our latest series of public meetings! Your input is very valuable. Keep an eye out for news about our wrap-up meeting coming in a couple months. Until then, you can still read over the reports from our from our first round of public engagement HERE.
For a little background about what these meetings have been about, the Greenville-Pickens Area Transportation Study (GPATS) is updating the Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP). It is called Horizon2040. We started this process with a kick-off meeting at the TD Convention Center in September. This has been followed by eight sub-regional meetings across our jurisdiction in October, an online MetroQuest survey, a statistically valid survey, and most recently a second series of meetings in May and June. Again, thank you everyone who participated! If you have any questions or comments, please contact Brennan Hansley, Transportation Planner, at (864) 467-7270 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
