Encompass 2040: This Plan Is Your Plan
The Association of Central Oklahoma Governments (ACOG) seeks public comment on Encompass 2040, the Draft Plan for the Oklahoma City Area Regional Transportation Study area. The plan serves as Central Oklahoma’s guide for investing more than $10 billion in its multimodal transportation system between 2010 and 2040.
“Central Oklahoma has experienced significant growth over the past decade,” said John G. Johnson, Executive Director, ACOG. “We believe this trend will continue and many more residents and businesses will move into the region in the years to come. This welcomed growth means more trips that will impact congestion, mobility and our overall quality of life.”
“We must earnestly look ahead and plan for suitable mobility options including improved roadways, transit services and bicycle and pedestrian amenities.”
Public Comment, Public Meetings & Public Availability Sessions
In the spirit of true public participation, ACOG has created a broad calendar of events to accommodate various publics and ensure ample opportunity for public comment. Public meetings and/or public availability sessions are planned from September 16-October 7, and include outreach to Edmond, Norman, West Oklahoma City and Downtown Oklahoma City as well as the Hispanic, Vietnamese and African American communities.
We welcome your comments.
