Through May 31, 2011, the Valdosta-Lowndes Metropolitan Planning Organization (VLMPO) invites the public to review and comment upon the Draft Public Participation Plan, available on the South Georgia Regional Commission Transportation Site and at all public libraries and government administration offices in Berrien, Lanier, and Lowndes counties, and city government administration offices in Valdosta. This plan presents ways in which the VLMPO assures compliance with federal nondiscrimination laws when developing transportation plans and administering federal transportation funds.
As the designated Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for the Valdosta-Lowndes Urbanized Area, the South Georgia Regional Commission (SGRC) partners with local governments on addressing public issues and enhancing community life. In order to qualify for federal transportation funds, any urbanized area of population greater than 50,000 (such as Valdosta) must prepare a comprehensive transportation plan that includes public input.
Take this opportunity to review and comment upon this public participation plan and help influence the quality of life in our community!
