Public Input Session - Round 2: January 9, 2014
UEDA is hosting this next session in partnership with the Southeastern Regional Planning Commission (SEWRPC). Workshops were held in each county earlier this month, but if you missed it, this is your chance to participate! This workshop will continue to serve as a guide for how the Region should move forward and for developing “sketch” future land use and transportation scenarios—the next step in the VISION 2050 process. On the agenda:
Hear from SEWRPC staff the results of the first series of VISION 2050 workshops.
View a set of draft Guiding Statements about regional land use and transportation.
Provide your feedback on the Guiding Statements – review, rate and suggest improvements.
Manpower is located east of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Drive (3rd Street), off of Cherry Street and just north of downtown Milwaukee. Parking is available on Cherry Street and in the Visitors Lot north of the building (on Cherry). Bus routes 19, 80, 57 and Green line all run nearby. Visit www.ridemcts.com to plan your trip.
VISION 2050 is an important opportunity to talk about the future of our region and provide your input to create a land use and transportation plan for the year 2050.
