A public meeting is scheduled for Thursday, May 8, 2014 from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm to share information and receive feedback on the Paulding Comprehensive Transportation Plan Update.
The meeting will be held at The Events Place located at 855 Hiram-Douglasville Hwy in Hiram (directly across the street from Ben Hill Strickland Sr. Memorial Park).
The plan covers Paulding County and the cities of Dallas, Hiram and Braswell.
According to Scott Greene, DOT Director, “The key measure of success will be public involvement. We need to know if the recommendations for moving our county forward make sense to our Citizens.”
The Comprehensive Transportation Planning (CTP) Program assists local governments by defining county-wide transportation goals, needs, and priorities. The updated plan will examine all modes of transportation and their interconnections to identify how the travel demand anticipated over the next 20-year plan period can be best accommodated.
The purpose of the meeting is to obtain feedback from citizens and other stakeholders on existing traffic and transportation conditions, hear suggestions on where improvements are needed and where transportation challenges are being experienced.
Presentations will be made at 5:45 pm and again at 6:45 pm. Public participation is very important to the success of the study process. A web site has been established as a tool for the public to stay informed throughout the study process.
An online survey is currently posted to obtain additional information about the public’s transportation preferences and experiences. The web site address is www.pauldingctp.us. Citizens wishing to comment may also send emails to firstname.lastname@example.org.
