MDOT Seeks Public Input
February 18, 2015
The Maine Department of Transportation is looking to "Talk Transportation" and seek public input regarding transportation issues during a series of public meetings throughout the state in February, March and April.
Input from the meetings will help MaineDOT in two ways. First it will assist them in understanding the needs of the public and various stakeholders to help the Department formulate its Long Range Needs Assessment. The Long Range Needs Assessment documents anticipated transportation system needs for the future 20 years, with a greater emphasis on the next 10 years. Public input is an important part of this long range planning process.
These meetings will also help the department in gathering input on short term issues and needs.
The meetings will consist of a brief presentation by MaineDOT staff regarding the Department's processes followed by interactive discussions to gain input from the attendees.
Unless otherwise noted, each location will host two meetings on the same day to ensure more people have a chance to attend.
The meetings will be held from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM AND 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM on each date:
Feb. 25 - Houlton, Region Two School of Applied Technology, 5 Bird Street (One Meeting, 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm)
March 2 - Calais, Washington County Community College, One College Drive
March 3 - Machias, Washington County Emergency Management Agency Building, 28 Center Street
March 4 - Ellsworth, Ellsworth City Hall (One Meeting, 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM)
