Boulder County Wants Transportation Feedback
Boulder County's Transportation Master Plan (TMP) team is looking for public feedback on their shaping their transportation plan. The plan describes Boulder County's multimodal transportation system and how it will develop over the next 25 years. This long-range plan discusses where people are traveling now - and where they will be going in the future. It focuses on travel within Boulder County and to other places in the region. The challenge is to facilitate this travel in a manner that is affordable, responsive to anticipated needs and changes, and consistent with Boulder County goals and policies.
