Immokaleans will have the perfect chance to speak out on long-range transportation projects - including the so-called Loop Road - during a public workshop set for March 10.
The 10 a.m. workshop will be held at the CareerSource Southwest Florida Service Center (the One-Stop Shop), 750 South 5th Street.
The Collier County Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) and its executive director, Lucilla Ayer, will be on hand to discuss the county's Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) and projects within that will affect transportation in and around Immokalee over the next 20 years.
The MPO is an advisory board of county and municipal elected leaders which plan and develop the county's transportation projects, both short term and long term.
The citizens advisory committee of the Immokalee Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) will discuss at its April 11th meeting which Immokalee projects should remain in the long range plan, which should be eliminated, which should be funded and currently without funding and other transportation issues important to Immokalee and the network of roads leading into the community.
"Please plan on attending this important meeting," said Bradley Muckel, interim executive director of the CRA. "This is Immokalee’s chance to begin to formulate a collective voice regarding the long-range plans for the transportation network in and around Immokalee."
The meeting is, of course, free and open to the public. Any questions about the forum can be directed to Muckel: BradleyMuckel@Colliergov.net.
