The city of Nampa invites members of the community to give their opinions about local transportation needs at an afternoon workshop on Thursday, June 8. The workshop will run from 4 to 6 p.m. at the Nampa Civic Center, 311 3rd St. S., Nampa.
The workshop is one of the first steps of updating the city’s long-term Transportation Master Plan, which provides a blueprint for Nampa’s transportation network. The existing plan was adopted by the Nampa City Council in 2012.
The plan guides Nampa city staff, City Council and regional transportation agencies each year when choosing which projects should receive funding. It includes information about transportation goals, existing and future roadway needs, bicycle/pedestrian infrastructure, and high-priority projects.
“The Nampa community played a significant role in developing the initial plan. In the years since then, growth and economic development have expanded significantly,” said Senior Transportation Planner Clair Bowman. “Our goal is to more accurately reflect and accommodate Nampa’s growing population, burgeoning economy and never-ending transportation needs.”
City staff will host three workshops during the development of the plan. At each event, participants will have the opportunity to give targeted feedback about a different element of the plan.
Community members are encouraged to attend as many workshops as possible. The second workshop is tentatively scheduled for the end of 2017.
To RSVP, contact Brittany Sullenger at 468-5401 or email her at email@example.com.
Those who have questions about the planning process are encouraged to contact Clair Bowman, Senior Transportation Planner, at (208) 468-5474 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
