A draft of the future regional transportation plan for the Oklahoma City metropolitan area is now available for review and comment. The proposed plan, known as the 2035 Oklahoma City Area Regional Transportation Study (OCARTS) plan, or Encompass 2035, provides a vision for transportation in the Central Oklahoma region, which includes Oklahoma and Cleveland counties and portions of Canadian, Grady, McClain and Logan counties.
The plan was prepared by the Association of Central Oklahoma Governments (ACOG), its partners and stakeholders, which includes elected officials and staff from communities throughout Central Oklahoma, as well as state and local transportation agencies. A Citizens Advisory Committee was also actively involved in the planning process.
The Encompass 2035 Draft Plan Summary is currently available for review at www.acogok.org/2035 and at all metro area public libraries. Comments can be made online at this site.
Written comments on the proposed plan will also be accepted through April 25. Comments should be sent to the Association of Central Oklahoma Governments, 21 E. Main Street, Suite 100, Oklahoma City, OK 73104, or may be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
