3) Metro Public comment period March 21 to May 5

Your voice is important: Public comment period March 21 to May 5.
The choices we make today about how we live, work and get around will determine the future of the region for generations to come.

There’s a reason our region has remained such a great place to live – decades of careful planning have preserved neighborhoods, supported our economy and protected the farms, forestland and natural areas that help create the unique sense of place and quality of life for which the region is known. Because good planning is an ongoing process, Metro is seeking your input on how you live, work and get around the region today and what changes you would like to see in the future.

Visit www.makeagreatplace.org Friday, March 21 through Monday, May 5 to take a short survey to inform the plans below. You can also give more detailed feedback on the plans and programs that will shape our region for the next 25 years.

Information that you provide will inform:
