Public Information Meeting Announced for March 29 for Transportation Improvement Program (TIP)

The Bloomington/Monroe County Metropolitan Planning Organization (BMCMPO) will hold a public information meeting on Wednesday, March 29 with the goal of gaining public input for development of the Fiscal Year 2018-2021 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). The TIP documents a comprehensive fiscally-constrained list of multi-modal federal-aid transportation projects programmed for Bloomington, ​Bloomington Transit, ​Ellettsville​, INDOT, Indiana University Transit, Monroe County, and Rural Transit. ​

Wednesday's public information meeting will be from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the Downtown Bloomington Transit Center, located at the corner of N. Walnut and E. Third Streets.

Development of the new TIP requires a public involvement process which includes a public review by the BMCMPO Citizens Advisory Committee and the Technical Advisory Committee, and adoption by the Policy Committee before submission to state and federal agencies.

Meeting attendees will be asked to provide feedback on the proposed list of TIP projects and to help shape the project funding priorities of the MPO for the next four years. The BMCMPO staff looks forward to discussing these and other important transportation issues with residents at the meeting.

For more information or to provide written comments on the FY 2018-2021 TIP, please contact BMCMPO Director Josh Desmond at 812-349-3423 or desmondj@bloomington.in.gov.
