The South Central Regional Council of Governments (SCRCOG) wants to hear the public’s thoughts about the future of transportation in the Greater New Haven area, and a virtual meeting to do that will be held on Feb. 2 at 6 p.m. via Zoom.

SCRCOG is updating the Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP), the guiding document for setting the region’s transportation priorities. The public’s comments will help the agency shape the updated MTP. The meeting on Feb. 2 and an in-person one set for Feb. 8 is part of the agency’s public participation plan in revising the MTP. The Feb. 8 meeting will be at 12:30 p.m. in SCRCOG’s offices at 127 Washington Ave, 4th Floor West, North Haven.

The public can also participate in a survey that SCRCOG is doing so agency planners will better understand the issues and opportunities for all those who live in and travel to the region, including motorists, bicyclists, pedestrians, and transit users.

SCRCOG is the Metropolitan Transportation Organization (MPO) for the Greater New Haven area. Writing and administering the MTP is one of the agency’s most important functions. The updated MTP will replace the one that SCRCOG adopted in 2019.
