Draft Amendment to the Fiscal Years 2014/15 through 2018/19 Transportation Improvement Program Public Comment Period Announced

Each year the Collier Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) is required to develop a financially feasible Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) that includes all transportation projects that are to be funded with state and federal dollars over the next five years.  Occasionally it becomes necessary to add, delete, or modify a project included in the MPO’s TIP.

The Collier MPO has begun a 21-day public comment period for the draft Fiscal Year (FY) 2014/15 – 2018/19 TIP Amendment.  The draft amendment is to add and increase funding for two new transit projects.  The first project is for the installation of new bus shelters at various locations throughout Collier County.  The second project is for Phase II capital improvements at Collier Area Transit’s (CAT) facility on Radio Road.  The funding for these projects will be appropriated from Federal Transit Administration (FTA).

Pursuant to the MPO’s Public Involvement Plan, the public comment period for the draft amendment will end Sept. 3.  The MPO Board will consider the adoption of the amendment together with comments received within the public comment period at the MPO’s regular meeting, Sept. 12 at   9 a.m., in the Board of County Commissioners Chambers on the third floor of the Collier County Government Center, 3299 Tamiami Trail East, Naples, Florida  34112
