The Rail Trail Conversion Advisory Committee of Sudbury would like to invite you to attend a briefing on the Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) presented by representatives of the Boston Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) at 7:30 pm Tuesday, March 22, Lower Town Hall, 322 Concord Road, Sudbury. The Boston MPO is a federally mandated agency with responsibility for determining transportation priorities in Boston and the 100 surrounding cities and towns, including Sudbury. The Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) describes how this agency understands our regional transportation issues, generates the criteria by which projects will be evaluated for funding in the Transportation Improvement Plan (TIP), and lays out our transportation priorities for the next twenty years. The new LRTP, “Paths to a Sustainable Region” will guide transportation investment in the region over the next twenty years. The MPO seeks to engage the public in a process through which increasingly scarce federal transportation funding is allocated, and to collect public input on regional priorities. You are encouraged to come, to ask questions about the plan, the organization, and the process, and to supply your input.
